Description

This publication will assist designers who need a better understanding of how to calculate U-values and kappa-values for use in calculation tools. It aims to:

  • support the implementation of building regulations on conservation of fuel and power and legislation on the energy performance of buildings
  • help raise awareness and understanding of U-values (thermal transmittances) and kappa-values (thermal mass values)
  • encourage a unified, consistent and up-to-date approach to calculating U-values and kappa-values.

The calculation methods are explained using worked examples for wall, roof and floor designs encompassing the main construction types in BR 443. The examples can be used to support training programmes for practitioners carrying out energy assessments and using U-value calculation software. Information is given about calculating U-values using standard simplified methods.
