Question: I am currently working on a project which use EnergyPlus for PCM (phase change material) performance assessment. I notice that PCM has latent heat, and I am struggling to find a correct field for me to submit the latent heat value for the PCM. ...
Read about Composite Wall Constructions, IORef page 159 (PDF page 198) Also the reference construction/materials set: CompositeWallConstructions.idf For example, the materials specified in the Benchmarks are whole-surface U-values that are meant to ...
Q: Reading the documentation, I'm wondering if the Cavity algorithm is usable for other double facade types or only Trombe wall? In other words, does Cavity implicitly presume that the inner wall is highly solar absorbent and so generate specific convect...
