USai 3.0 calculates the heat transfer coefficient of walls and predicts the risk of damaging condensation on the wall's interior surface. It can be used to quickly model ranges of facade renovation options and to determine their respective U values (overall heat transfer coefficient).

USai 3.0 provides valuable data to support the decision making process in building renovation projects. It's intuitive interface and our outstanding customer support will enable you to quickly generate reliable results and realize project time and cost savings.

USai 3.0 is connected to the product databases of several major building materials suppliers through the materialsdb.org system.
