FAQ - How can I create a new surface type in Radiance?
This document details the steps you must follow to create a new surface in Radiance.
Creating surface types and changing their properties
As you now have a base/ground zone in the model you need to create a new surface type within Radiance/Surface properties. When you create the “new” surface replace the existing. First we need to select the required surface type. For this example we will change the south wall of the L-shaped room.
Here we will create a new wall type and use it to replace the existing wall type.
The same can be done for a glazing surface type.
Changing the surface properties
Here you will be shown how to change the interior surface properties of the new wall surface type.
Similarly, you can change the properties for the new glazing surface type.
I hope this helps.
