Wall/floor intersection is important parts of a building envelope system. These intersections can be sources of thermal bridging effects and/or moisture condensation problems. This paper provides a detailed analysis of the thermal performance of wall/floor intersection. In particular, two-dimensional steady-state and transient solutions of the heat conduction within the wall/floor joint are presented. Various insulation configurations are considered to determine the magnitude of heat transfer increase due to wall/floor joint construction.
