Version 4.1 Build 14

ATHENA Impact Estimator for Buildings 4.1.14 (Version 4.1 Build 14) was released in September 2011.

Changes & Issues Addressed:

  1. Project Amnesia : When multiple projects are loaded each of which having one or more Assembly and/or report forms simultaneously open, the program intermittently "forgets" which project is active when a user clicks between the open forms (thereby activating them). The signature of this bug appears when the "Save As" form opens when the user attempts to "Save" a previously saved (or opened) project file.
  2. Assembly : Mixed Columns & Beams : The "Area" cannot be derived from the inputs on the form, thereby causing the "Construction Energy" to be calculated improperly. A new input field "Supported Area" was added to correct this bug.
  3. Assembly : Custom Walls : "Construction Energy" was not being calculated properly for wall assemblies. This bug was introduced in version 4.1.12.
  4. Assembly : Custom Walls : added new "Pre-engineered Metal Wall System" assembly (for demonstration purposes).
  5. Assembly : Mixed Columns & Beams : added new "Pre-engineered Metal Frame System" assembly (for demonstration purposes).
  6. Assembly : Roofs : added new "Pre-engineered Metal Roof System" assembly (for demonstration purposes).
  7. Assembly : Extra Basic Materials - Other : added "Polypropylene Scrim Kraft Vapour Retarder Cloth" (PSK)
  8. Assembly : Extra Basic Materials - Roofing : added "12 Ga. Steel Roof"
  9. Assembly : Extra Basic Materials - Roofing : added "24 Ga. Steel Roof (Commercial)"
  10. Assembly : Extra Basic Materials - Roofing : added "30 Ga. Steel Roof (Residential)"

Database Updates

  • Updated Assembly data : "Concrete Tilt Up Wall" assembly to correct the wrong "Construction Type" mapping which was causing "Construction Energy" to be underestimated.
  • Added new Assembly : "Pre-engineered Metal Frame System"
  • Added new Assembly : "Pre-engineered Metal Wall System"
  • Added new Assembly : "Pre-engineered Metal Roof System"
  • Updated Materials : corrected Manufacturing Transportation data for all raw materials. Updated a source code bug that was off by the inverse of the data correction. The net effect is zero change for Manufacturing Transportation.
  • Updated Materials : "GluLam" manufacturing data has been updated for all Canadian regions.
  • Updated Materials : corrected Demolition Energy value for "Concrete Block", "Concrete Blocks", and "Mortar".
  • Updated Materials : corrected Manufacturing Energy Consumption values for "Roofing Asphalt".
  • Added new Material : "12 Ga. Steel Roof"
  • Added new Material : "24 Ga. Steel Roof (Commercial)"
  • Added new Material : "30 Ga. Steel Roof (Residential)"
  • Updated Envelope : changed name to "26 Ga. Galvanized Sheet (Commercial)" from "Steel-Commercial"
  • Updated Envelope : changed name to "30 Ga. Galvanized Sheet (Residential)" from "Steel-Residential"
  • Added new Envelope Category : "Steel Roof System"
  • Added new Envelope : "12 Ga. Galvanized Sheet"
  • Added new Envelope : "PSK" to Envelope Category "Vapour Barrier"
  • Added new Envelope : "PSK" to Envelope Category "Vapour & Air Barrier"
