Software for practice
The calculation of structure and building component behaviour under various aspects of building physics requires a profound specialized knowledge. A continuous validation of the programs is necessary during and after the development of software tools for calculation.
Experience and adequate experimental equipment are prerequisites. The Fraunhofer Institute of Building Physics IBP developed and continuously administers software from this point of view.
The Institute offers the following programs for practical use:
ADELINE: Detailed daylight and artificial light planning and visualisation software
compas: Sound propagation in channels lined with absorbing material
Desktop Triso: Calculation of thermal bridges
EnEVnet: Marketing tools for energy-saving rules and regulations
IBP18599kernel: Compact calculations related to DIN 18599
IBP:18599: Energy performance of buildings, calculating the useful, final, and energy demand for heating, cooling, lighting and DHW
Imedas: Internet Measurement and Data Evaluation System
Leso-DIAL: Simple daylight planning software
Noise Reduction Auralisation: Real-time auralisation system
Sound insulation according to EN 12354: Airborne and impact sound transmission
WUFI: Calculation of the coupled heat and moisture transfer in building components
