Abstract: To meet mandated energy reduction goals, this work developed a number of heat transmittance factors for use in including the heat loss of thermal bridging in the energy analysis of buildings. This work provides practical guidelines for the mitigation and reduction of thermal bridge problems in existing and new Army facilities. A wide range of building types was investigated from which nine com-mon types were identified, and a number of important thermal bridge details were chosen for each. A list of details was compiled, from which 30 were chosen for detailed analysis based on their significance.
