Import WINDOW Glz System

Component Index > Honeybee > 11 | THERM > Import WINDOW Glz System

Use this component to import the content of a LBNL WINDOW text file report as a series of polygons and boundary conditions that can be plugged into the "Write THERM File' component.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
_windowGlzSysReport_windowGlzSysReportA filepath to a detailed galzing system text file report exportedby WINDOW.Goo
_location__location_An optional plane or point to set the location of the glazing system in the Rhino scene. The default is set to the Rhino origin and in the XY plane.Goo
_orientation__orientation_An integer that sets the orientation of the window in the Rhino scene. Choose from the following options that correspond with THERM's options: 0 = Up 1 = Down 2 = Left 3 = RightGoo
_sightLineToGlzBottom__sightLineToGlzBottom_A number in Rhino model units that represents the distance from the bottom of the glass pane to the end of the frame (where the 'edge of glass' starts). The default is set to 12.7 mm.Goo
_spacerHeight__spacerHeight_A number in Rhino model units that represents the distance from the bottom of the glass pane to the end of the spacer. The default is set to 12.7 mm.Goo
_edgeOfGlassDim__edgeOfGlassDim_A number in Rhino model units that represents the distance from the start of the frame to the start of the 'center of glass' zone. This 'edge of glass' zone typically has a U-Value that is higher than the rest of the glass. The default is set to 63.5 mm.Goo
_glzSystemHeight__glzSystemHeight_A number in Rhino model units that represents the height to make the glazing system in the Rhino scene. The default is set to 150 mm.Goo
spacerMaterial_spacerMaterial_An optional material that will be used to create a spacer for the glazing system. If no material is input here, no psacer will be created.Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
outreadMe!...String
thermPolygonsthermPolygonsThe therm polygons for the glazing system.Goo
indoorBCsindoorBCsThe thermBCs that represent the interior side of the glazing system, including separate boundary conditions for the edge of frame and center of glass. Note that a boundary condition for with the 'Frame' UFactorTag must be made separately.Goo
outdoorBCoutdoorBCA single thermBC that represents the exterior side of the glazing system. This includes the exterior conditions taken from the report.Goo
indoorPropertiesindoorPropertiesA list of properties for the interior boundary condition in the following order: Name, temperature, film coefficient. These can be used to create a boundary condition for the 'Frame.'Goo
outdoorPropertiesoutdoorPropertiesA list of properties for the exterior boundary condition in the following order: Name, temperature, film coefficient. These can be used to create a boundary condition that includes the frame of the window.Goo
