Dear Farraj Alajmi,

the multizone building model Type56 of TRNSYS, where Prebid is the user
surface for the definition of the builing, does consider the thermal
capacity effects of the walls. The walls are modeled according to the
transfer function relationships of Mitalas and Arseneault defined from
surface to surface.

Mitalas G.P., Arseneault, J.G.: " Fortran IV Program to calculate
z-transfer functions for the calculation of transient heat transfer through

walls and roofs", Division of National Research Council of Canada, Ottawa.

For further information about the Program TRNSYS and their distributors,
please visit


With kind regards,

Matthias Rudolph
