This course focuses on the relationship between ventilation and condensation performance problems within the living spaces of the building, as well as within enclosed spaces of the building enclosure such as vented roof assemblies, parapets, walkways and crawlspaces. Building code requirements and the science of ventilation and condensation will be presented followed by case studies that illustrate the concepts.

This course will be of interest to building enclosure engineers, architects and technologists.
Attendees will:
  • Develop an understanding of the ventilation and condensation requirements that are addressed by the building code, as well as those performance aspects that are not specifically addressed.
  • Develop an understanding of the science of ventilation, air movement, and condensation control variables.
  • Learn about specific building situations where condensation performance problems can occur and how to correct these problems in new and rehabilitation construction.
Topics covered will include:

Ventilation of Enclosed Exterior Spaces
The science of ventilation and condensation within exterior enclosed spaces like attics, vented low slope roof assemblies, cathedral roofs, parapets, walkways, crawl spaces, and other dead air spaces.  Includes overview of code mandated ventilation requirements for interior spaces of buildings, as well as exterior enclosed space guidance provided in Part 9.
Window and Wall Condensation Performance
Presentation of the factors impacting condensation performance on the interior surfaces of walls and windows, including ventilation, glazing and frame performance, and window to wall transitions.

Eligible for 4 core learning units for AIBC
