Unique building projects, from stadiums to museums to concert halls, often employ complex and customized glazing systems to fit with the architectural intent. However, this can sometimes come in conflict with the building function, especially when there are strict conditioning requirements within the building interiors for condensation resistance and interior surface temperatures. To better ensure these customized systems will perform as required, project specific condensation analysis is needed that appropriately takes into account the unique features of not only the glazing system, but also the surrounding area and conditions. This presentation will show how a condensation analysis can be performed using 3D thermal modelling, mechanical design information and annual climate data to better assess the risks of condensation through several case examples.
