Ventilated Facades - Thermal Analysis



The thermal analysis model for ventilated walls was created using PAN2 software, which made it possible to compare two different types of walls which are particularly common in Italy. The thermal and energy characteristics of these walls were analysed before and after the application of the ventilated wall, in order to determine - also with a view to provisions of Italian Legislative Decree number 192/2005 and subsequent modifications - the advantages that may derive from applying such a system.

  • Finite element Mesh

  • Thermal flux vectors

  • Temperature distribution

  • Thermal flux magnitude

In addition to the undoubted advantages in terms of the dispersal of energy through the walls, ventilated facades make it possible to eliminate one of the main plroblems affecting structures with beams and pillars: heat bridges.
This phenomenon occurs in floors and anywhere there is a break in the structure, as it can be seen in the simulations presented here: the thermal flux intensifies at the floor.
Laying insulation on the outside of the wal to be covered makes it possible to eliminate this problem.
