CIBSE Cooling Loads - Solar Gain

Postby Shane » Wed Nov 24, 2010 9:19 pm


Just wondering is there anywhere to get the figures for the Solar Calculations for the cooling load in the CIBSE calculations? I am using the tables for a manual calculation as in the guides and the solar gain should be at its peak in June, however IES is saying it is for the design room in May

In Vista Solar Gain is one of the room level variables. Select a room(s) and you can view the solar gains for the .clg results file. This should give you the data you are looking for.
