Notional Building Specific Fan Powers

I've noticed that the notional building is using the 2010 compliance method to calculate the Specific fan powers for the 2013 partL simulations. How can we change this setting to the 2013 method that should be used with the latest PartL models? There is nothing in the Building Regulations PartL docu...

IES 2017 is slow!

Why is the new version of IES considerably slower when doing the normal activities such as switching tabs in tabular data? Even on a small project, this is slow. Have the minimum PC requirements changed for the latest version? I am using one of my companies CAD desktops which runs software such as A...

Re: Solar Gains query

Could someone point out how to upload images?

Then I can upload some of our model.

Looking in the FAQ it says about having the files on an open server/website.

Does anyone use a specific website so they can upload to here?

Thanks

Re: Solar Gains query

OK, So I have run the model in the following ways and have the corresponding results 1. No Adjacent Buildings - Suncast Link on = 1.6kW Solar Gains 2. No Adjacent Buildings - Suncast Link off = 15kW Solar Gains 3. Adjacent buildings as "Adjacent Buildings" - Suncast Link on = 1.6kW Solar G...

Lighting Controls and Table 42 in NDBSCG

My query is about the lighting efficacy with controls stated. In table 42 of the non-domestic services compliance guide, it states the lm/w for different control schemes. If I state my luminaire lm/w as 60 for example then have a control scheme of "daylit space with photo-switching and dimming&...

Re: Solar Gains query

I would be able to see that if the buildings were not directly adjacent to each other. The only gap between the building and adjacent buildings is at ground level due to the overhang, the levels above are "butted" against the adjacent buildings so there is no path for sunlight to take to r...

Solar Gains query

Hi, Apologies if I am repeating a thread but the search functionality in these forums is pretty poor, this is a separate conversation altogether! I have a model with multiple floors and is completely surrounded by adjacent buildings. The ground floor is smaller than the other floors so effectively t...

Re: Add Voids to selected space(s) tool

Hi David,

I see the reasoning behind that, however in my scenario the windows would not have clashed with the void.

I am aware of that method as I use that for placing the windows to start with :)

Thanks for the response.

Add Voids to selected space(s) tool

Hi, Has anyone else noticed that when you use this tool on a space with windows it moves the windows down in the lower zone? if the window hits the floor it also cuts the size of the window potentially leaving you with less window area than you intended! Is there a reason for this? I think we should...
