Possibly the most important parameter in the calculation time of the thermal loads, and that from this are the thermal properties to assign each of the openings and closings of the building.
There are two possible options:
1. – THE ARCHITECT HAS GIVEN TO THE MATERIALS THERMAL PROPERTIES
This is the ideal situation. Here we should not incorporate any value in dialogue “building construction” and should be:
2. – THE ARCHITECT HAS NOT GIVEN TO THE MATERIALS THERMAL PROPERTIES
In this situation use dialogue to incorporate thermal properties we want to have each of the different closures and openings. In this way, each and every component of the building will inherit the properties we have chosen.
We can find the ability to have certain areas of the building that their closing properties differ from those specified generically to the entire building in the dialogue “building construction”, in this case, and without leaving the dialog “heating and cooling loads “We must use the tab” details “, here you can edit the characteristics of each individual space.
If we open the dialogue “construction type” of a specific space, we see the dialog that opens is almost identical to what we used to edit the properties of the whole building enclosures, here we can create templates that we want (I have created with the name “prueba”) and use it to the spaces we want.
Default is loaded a template with the name “building”, the properties of enclosures that template can not be edited, as are the values we have awarded anteriomente in dialogue “building construction”.
In the two scenarios that have been raised above will always find a way to force the desired thermal properties by “clicking” on the override box column.
