Getting to grips with new software can be challenging, especially not knowing where to start. So, that’s why we’ve created a handy Trial Support Guide offering you useful advice and best practices to help you get started.
Creation, editing, and assignment of opaque and glazed constructions to apply to your model.
Assign, inspect and/or modify building templates within the VE.
How to build and use profiles to act as controllers for your model.
Create and edit templates, linked to energy sources and meters, to control the building systems.
Edit aspects of the data assigned using building templates on a space by space basis, if required.
Luminaire placement, lighting design calculation, artificial/daylight analysis and combined lighting levels.
Look at the different types of simulations available in RadianceIES and the settings required to perform these simulations and start to assess further. Generate Luminance and Illuminance images.
Useful Daylight Illuminance (UDI), Spatial Daylight Autonomy (SDA), Annual Sunlight Exposure (ASE), LEED V4.1 Daylight Credit Option 1 & 2 and BREEAM Hea01 Visual Comfort.
Sensor settings, and how to place sensors for daylight harvesting so that radiance sensors can be used to create dimming profiles in Apache to assess potential savings.
Quickly and easily create more detailed HVAC systems, with zoning, airside and waterside. Perform CIBSE or ASHRAE based loads calculations, for sizing and reports, or a dynamic simulation. Take advantage of the library of full auto-sizeable NCM systems.
