The Sustainability Committee of the Structural Engineering Institute
has formed a Thermal Steel Bridging Working Group. They will be
defining and quantifying the issue of thermal steel bridging in
buildings, and identifying solutions. This includes:
- Reviewing research that has been conducted so far
- Reviewing code implications of integrating thermal break material into building details
- Reviewing how various energy modeling software programs handle thermal bridging
- Compiling options for details that reduce thermal bridging
The Working Group is chaired by Jim D’Aloisio, who can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
