Thermal Analysis of Total Precast Concrete MURB Walls

RDH Building Science undertook a detailed study focusing on thermal bridging in total pre-cast concrete construction as is commonly used in new multi-unit residential buildings. The study considers thermal bridging issues across a variety of interfaces including internal walls, window and door flankings, balconies etc. The paper includes a case study of a typical MURB building, identifying thermal transmittance and effective whole wall R-values.
