Tutorials and Cookbooks

Tutorials shall help you to learn the AnTherm application quickly and efficiently.

Examples and guides collected below shall explain the usage of the application. They shall allow the user to quickly learn the operation of the application and contain useful tips regarding input strategies also.

Following tutorials are available:

• Modelling and Evaluation Tutorial •
• VAPOUR - Tutorial •
• Usage Hints Introductory Tutorial •
• Transiente Simulation - Tutorial •
• Example images •
• Example: Results repot (edited) •
• Example: Coupling Coefficients report (edited) •

Hint: The application help window will always display on top (in front of) all other application windows when invoked directly from the application (via F1 key or the Help menu) and eventually overlap them. To have help window be freely switchable via desktop manager (which will allow you to bring the application windows to front) you shall start the application help from the windows start menu instead (Start-All Programs-AnTherm-Help) and browse the contents manually to the chapter of your choice.
With the application setting "Help Window shown TopMost" the user can decide if the Help window will be shown topmost to all application windows and automatically minimize with the application (which is the windows default behaviour) or it can be set behind the application window via typical desktop window manager (default application setting).

Example project files

There are several example projects included within the application's installation to give you a quick start. You will find these examples in the subfolder "Beispiele" (means "examples" in german) of the installation folder (typically its is C:\Program Files\tkornicki\AnTherm\Beispiele ). After opening one of these example projects (via menu Help->Example Load...) please save a working copy of it to your private folder (menu File->Save as...).
Below the listing of some:

BEISPIEL_1   3-dimensional modelling of an building corner with balcony. This example is identical to the 3rd validation example of EN ISO 10211.
BEISPIEL_2   3-dimensional modelling detail of a glass roof over indoor swimming pool. To avoid condensation one of the joists is heated by filament (heating power can be entered).
BEISPIEL_3   3-dimensional modelling detail of exterior wall of vertically perforated bricks.
The calculation of heat transport is executed to obtain medium U-Value for unrendered wall.
DEMO1_3D Wall corner made of homogenous material, plastered on both sides with concrete ceiling with plaster. Three-dimensional calculation.
DEMO3_3D Masonry wall corner plastered on both sides with concrete ceiling with plaster. Three-dimensional calculation.
Hallenbad_2D VAPOUR - Tutorial: Example of two dimensional heat and vapour transport (diffusion) and interstitial condensation risk assessment.
Junction detail of flat roof of an indoor pool. Dividing wall between living room and indoor swimming pool: double skin brick wall with 5 cm core insulation. Calculation of the heat and vapour transport.
Hallenbad_3D VAPOUR - Tutorial: Example of three dimensional heat and vapour transport (diffusion) and interstitial condensation risk assessment.
Junction details of the flat roof over an indoor pool. Dividing wall between living room and indoor swimming pool: double skin brick wall with 5 cm core insulation. Exterior wall of the swimming pool: 25 cm concrete, 15 cm core insulation, 12.5 cm brick sheathing. Calculation of the heat and vapour transport 
overlap Example showing effect of overlapping principles of data entry. Flipping the order of elements results in different overlapping product. Try reordering (promote/demote) of a selected element.
TUTOR2_orig TUTORIAL - 2-dimensional: Reinforced concrete slab with masonry bearing wall on girder over carport (+ exterior insulation and electric heating cable assembly embedded in concrete floor topping).
TUTOR3_orig TUTORIAL - 3-dimensional: Corner construction over carport. Masonry bearing wall on girder over carport and bonded with concrete floor slab (+ ext. insul, perimeter insul., elect. heating assembly in floor topping).
EN ISO 10077 All conformance validation examples of EN ISO 10077 (Frames).
EN ISO 10211 All conformance validation examples of EN ISO 10211 (Thermal bridges).
EN ISO 13786 All validation examples of EN ISO 13786 (Dynamic thermal indicators).

Remark: To quickly reach examples installed within the example folder use the  Menu Help->Example Load... .

Remark: Further tutorials, references, examples, videos and imagery of AnTherm can be available at the AnTherm's website or Blog also. Please visit them frequently. You will find the link to AnTherm's web within the Help menu.
