Thermally Bridged EP Construction - [source code]
Use this component to adjust the U-value an EP construction without any thermal bridges to account for birdges by adjusting the condutivity of one of the materials. -
originalEPConstruction [Required]An EP construction that does not have any thermal bridges associated with it.
thermBridgedUValue [Required]The U-value in SI units (W/m2-K) that you would like the whole construction assembly to be adjusted to. This U-value should include the resistance of air films on either side of the construction assembly, which is included by default in the output from THERM simulations.
materialToAdjust [Required]The name of a material within the _originalEPConstruction that you would like to have the conductivity adjusted to meet the _thermBridgedUValue.
customName [Default]An optional custom name to be added to the new thermally bridged material and construction.
bridgedConstructionA thermally bridged construction that can be applied to HBZones and HBSurfaces for energy simulations.
bridgedConstrTextThe IDF text that defines the thermally bridged construction that has been written to the memory of the document.
bridgedMaterialTextThe IDF text that defines the thermally bridged material within the construction.
bridgedMatRValueThe R-value of the newly created thermally bridged material.
