Thermal bridging through insulation layers in the building envelope reduces the thermal performance of building envelope assemblies and heat flow through thermal bridging can have a detrimental impact on wholebuilding energy performance. So, it is important for energy modelers, building engineers, and architects to consider the effects of thermal bridging when evaluating the expected performance of building envelope details and when designing building envelopes for energy efficient buildings…
