Thermal Bridge definition
With TerMus BRIDGE you can define any kind of Thermal Bridge with graphical objects that contain all the relevant data and properties necessary for numerical calculation allowing you to manually input materials and boundary characteristics.
You can import construction details in DXF/DWG CAD file format to quickly draw a thermal bridge of any shape and form. Zoom, SNAP, radial or rectangular grids give extra drawing guidance.
If your Thermal Bridge is among the standard configuration models, you can easily select it from the archive (EN ISO 14863), and customize its thermal and geometric data to quickly generate the calculation model.
Numerical calculations with TheBriNA integrated solver
Finite element analysis is the only efficient method to calculate the linear thermal transmittance of thermal bridges when composed of any type of material and shape. The different combinations are endless just as the multitude of practical cases that the technician may be finding himself in front of.
With TerMus BRIDGE you’ll be able to quickly get the thermal bridge calculation from a simple drawing thanks to TheBriNA calculation solver (Thermal Bridges Numerical Analysis) included in the software.
Once the calculation process is launched, the program automatically performs a diagnostic, in order to detect any problems and detailed instructions on how to solve them. The user can then easily consult the results (thermal transmittance, thermal coupling coefficient, heat flow, etc…) in both numerical and graphical form, evaluate the outcome of triangulation and view the contour lines or temperature curves.
You have complete drawing freedom, in all conditions and you can evaluate an infinite number of combinations. Simply reset the calculation results, choose new materials, modify the contour, create a new layer and restart the calculation.
The speed and ease-of-use of TerMus BRIDGE, combined with a high performance computing solver, allows you to evaluate multiple energy solutions in real time.
