*Ask a Modeler: How Well do Building Simulation Programs Model Thermal

This month Som S. Shrestha, R&D Staff Scientist at Oak Ridge National
Laboratory, replies: *"Dear Learning, Building envelopes are
non-homogeneous, so heat transfer through a building envelope is not one
dimensional due to thermal bridging. However, thermal bridges cannot be
explicitly modeled in most whole-building simulation tools, including
