Duration: The educational seminar runs for approx. 40 minutes, (although your mileage may vary if you pause the show to read slides) running time. The original source seminar consisted of 122 slides.

Comments: This educational seminar discusses thermal modeling and specification of three-dimensional cold bridging in curtain walls. Modern curtain walls often feature protruding overhangs, exterior shading, and random jogs in plane (to list only a few), which need to be custom designed and fine tuned to meet the specified thermal performance requirements. We show two case studies of sunshade bracket penetrations and explain how some relatively easy and inexpensive modifications (i.e. substitution of a nylon shim or stainless steel plate) can influence the curtain wall performance. The seminar describes typical challenges and solutions experienced on the average project, focusing on those aspects which are typically overlooked by others. The 3D modeling is a very narrow niche; however, the content is delivered at an elementary level. It comes straight from horse’s mouth, because Kaz is a curtain wall and 3D modeling expert.

The interested reader may also refer to the articles: “Using 3D Thermal Modeling to Improve Performance Requirements” in JBED Summer 2010 and “Condensation Risk Assessment” in The Construction Specifier 10/2007, available via our old website.

Audience: It’s intended for construction design professionals who are on the receiving end of the modeling and simulation process, including curtain wall contractors’ teams.

Trailer. We never produced a trailer for this DVD.

 Self Reporting Form: Never produced. Learning units may be arranged on individual basis for an additional fee, and would require a competency component (a test after you watched the video).

GENERAL DESCRIPTION: The seminars focus on areas typically overlooked by architects and engineers in process of building envelope design. The topics are chosen on basis of observations derived from both forensic investigations of failed assemblies and peer reviews of architectural documentation.

The  seminar was given by Kaz only once, at the University of Southern California. This video was prepared on basis of the draft of the slideshow and shipped ahead of time to be played in case Kaz couldn’t make it. However, Kaz had successfully arrived on time, and by then has changed the seminar completely.

Version.  It’s  the first version from year 2013. We never had the time to update this DVD.

Packaging:  May vary. We will probably switch to cardboard sleeves soon.

How Can I get it? We  sell them directly, as well as they will be available through third-party re-sellers soon. They are currently available for download.
Price:  We also encourage a purchase of several DVDs at a discount.If you plan to purchase, please approve the applicable terms and conditions. When you press the “Buy Now” button, you will be taken to the checkout webpage.
