AnTherm (Analysis of Thermal behavior of Building Constructions with Heat Bridges) is a powerful program used for heat flow calculation in building construction elements - the thermal heat bridges and vapor bridges. Thermal Bridge Assessment can be executed easily, quickly and precisely with AnTherm. This Thermal Heat / Cold Bridge Simulation Software calculates the distribution of temperature, heat streams and vapor diffusion streams within building components of arbitrary form and built as composite of arbitrary materials. Furthermore AnTherm can compute and evaluate the dew point values (condensing humidity) at all component surfaces as well as partial vapor pressure in components interior. This application is also suitable for analyzing dynamic behavior of building components (for periodic, harmonic, transient boundary conditions).
For the technically qualified designer, AnTherm is a reliable, indispensable tool in meeting the demands of the current standards (ISO, EN, ...) for evaluating thermal performance thoroughly and precisely. The detailed analysis of thermal bridges for passive house planning, energy efficiency assessment or certification need not be complex nor sophisticated today.
The thermal heat bridge (cold bridge) can be modeled in 2D or 3D
Two and three dimensional stationary (steady state) and transient (harmonic, periodic) heat flow simulation
Modeling of multiple space cases and volumetric heat sources (power-, heating sources or sinks)
AnTherm is a powerful program package for the calculation of temperature distributions and heat flows in building structures - particularly such with thermal heat bridges (cold bridges). For the technically qualified designer, AnTherm is a reliable, indispensable tool in meeting the demands of the current European standards (EN) for evaluating thermal performance thoroughly and precisely.
Computational capabilities of the thermal bridge software AnTherm include, amongst others:
applicable and suitable with very detailed components (e.g. facades, window frames, ...) and for very large, extensive calculation cases (e.g. components in contact with ground, whole space envelopes, groups of spaces, ...)
calculation and visualization of the distribution of relative condensing humidity at all surfaces
calculation of the field of partial vapor pressureand, having the difference built to saturation pressure easy identification of core condensation risk within the component (with DAMPF-Option),
It shall be emphasized, that Prof. Dr. Krec, one of the fathers of the concept of "thermal conductance coefficients", has not only been continuously involved at the development of AnTherm and took part in decision making and verification of the software, but also stands by, by phone, in case of questions and conversation demand regarding the area of multidimensional thermal transfer and application of Antherm to AnTherm users.
