I'm not very familiar with Trane's System Analyzer but have a particular
question: According to Trane's website,
"System Analyzer generalizes building load characteristics. All buildings
are calculated as rectangular with two zones — an interior and a perimeter —
and evenly distributed internal loads, ventilation, and glass."
I'm looking at a project reference to 75 zones in a 15 story building.
That's five zones per floor which implies four perimeter and one internal
zone per floor.
Does SA use four perimeter zones per floor? Or one?
