How to define the construction of adiabatic ceilings?
Posted by Andy Tindale on 05-May-10 04:48 PM
In DesignBuilder, internal ceiling constructions are usually defined as the floors of the zone above, but when there is no zone above (because it is an adiabatic surface), the ceiling construction must be defined in a different way. To define the construction of an adiabatic ceiling you should use the internal floor construction data at zone level. The order of the elements will be reversed correctly for calculations.
