The two-dimensional steady heat transfer of corner column is analyzed using ANSYS, moreover, influencing zone of thermal bridge and heat loss in influencing zone is analyzed quantitatively. Research shows that when the thickness of insulation layer is more than 20mm, influencing zone of thermal bridge is about 160mm, and additional heat flow in influencing zone accounts for more than 20% of additional heat flow in thermal bridge.

Keywords: Corner column, heat flow, nfluencing zone of thermal bridge.
