WUFI ( Wärme Und Feuchte Instationär) software has been proven to be an essential tool in designing high-performance buildings. Named for a German abbreviation meaning "heat and humidity transference", WUFI simulations help to understand relative risk levels of different building assembly configurations under a variety of climatic conditions.

A thorough understanding of the limits and capabilities of simulations is essential for those using WUFI. As co-creator of the software, there is no more qualified trainer than Manfred Kehrer, a building scientist working as R&D staff for Oak Ridge National Laboratory in the US, and the Manager of Software Development for Fraunhofer IBP in Germany.

WUFI has been widely validated by testing, and can display, realistically in the design stage, the moisture content within the individual component layers and at their boundaries. The advantages are the fast, safe, and reliable analyses of the properties and safety margins of construction.

Each student brings his/her own laptop, receives software with a temporary license, and will run simulations.  The computer modeling enables the user to diagnose or design wall or roof configurations within a user-specified geographic region for which NOAA has gathered weather data for decades.  Even mold growth in the building can be predicted using this model.
