Maria Spinu joined Dupont in Wilmington , Delaware in 1990 and she currently leads Building Science and Sustainability for DuPont Building Innovations. Maria is a member of 90.1 ASHRAE Committee, CSI, BEC/AIA, etc. and Dupont is a cornerstone partner of AIA. Maria works with the Energy Efficiency in Buildings (EEB) Project, a global initiative of World Business Council for Sustainable Development (WBCSD). Maria has published many papers, is the author of 15 patents and has been an invited speaker at many regional, national and international conferences on building science and sustainability.
As many design options and material choices for a given function requires a better understanding of the physics behind proper envelope design, Maria will be presenting the fundamental physics of Heat, Air and Moisture management through the building envelope and the role of Water, Air and Vapor Barriers in achieving moisture managed envelope design. Recent code trends in North America and their consequences on the capacity of the building envelope to manage incidental moisture intrusion will also be discussed. The seminar will conclude with highlights of design tools for moisture analysis and recommendations for specifying and detailing durable building envelopes.
