EnergyPlus NoMass Opaque Material

Component Index > Honeybee > 06 | Energy | Material | Construction > EnergyPlus NoMass Opaque Material

Use this component to create a custom opaque material that has no mass, which can be plugged into the "Honeybee_EnergyPlus Construction" component.
It is important to note that this component creates a material with no mass and, because of this, the accuracy of the component is not as great as a material that has mass. However, this component is very useful if you only have an R-value for a material (or a construction) and you know that the mass is relatively small.
If you want to create a material that accounts for mass, you should use the "Honeybee_EnergyPlus Window Material" component.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_name_nameA text name for your NoMass Opaque Material.Goo
_roughness__roughness_A text value that indicated the roughness of your material. This can be either "VeryRough", "Rough", "MediumRough", "MediumSmooth", "Smooth", and "VerySmooth". The default is set to "Rough".Goo
_R_Value_R_ValueA number representing the R-Value of the material in m2-K/W.Goo
_thermAbsp__thermAbsp_An number between 0 and 1 that represents the thermal abstorptance of the material. The default is set to 0.9, which is common for most non-metallic materials.Goo
_solAbsp__solAbsp_An number between 0 and 1 that represents the abstorptance of solar radiation by the material. The default is set to 0.7, which is common for most non-metallic materials.Goo
_visAbsp__visAbsp_An number between 0 and 1 that represents the abstorptance of visible light by the material. The default is set to 0.7, which is common for most non-metallic materials.Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
EPMaterialEPMaterialA no-mass opaque material that can be plugged into the "Honeybee_EnergyPlus Construction" component.Goo
