IDA Indoor Climate and Energy (www.equa.se/ice) has a component for floor
heating that is straightforward to use. IDA is used by Tarmac in the UK for
modeling TermoDeck buildings, i.e. ventilated hollow core slabs. Slab
cooling in the present version requires a bit more effort since the user has
to connect pipes and controllers at the advanced level interface.
Let me know if you want any further details on this.

> Since the system will be used for both applications I need to size the

> If somebody reading this "cry for help" has examples or even

> Many thanks for your effort in advance!
