Thermal Performance

 

 

 

Whole-Wall Thermal Performance,

The Whole-Wall Thermal Performance Calculator provides an on-line, interactive method for determining the whole-wall R-value for a variety of wall systems and house plans. The Whole-Wall Thermal Performance Calculator makes use of a database of results from detailed thermal analyses performed by Jan Kosny (kyo@ornl.gov) using the HEATING finite-difference heat transfer computer program. Graphics of wall structural details and building floor plans were developed by Gail Snodgrass.
