Dear all,

I am looking into the modelling of underfloor heating/ cooling systems and
the response of the space to the system and the external climate.
Since the system will be used for both applications I need to size the
system based on cooling. Can I use Energy Plus to determine the pipe centres
(density of pipes necessary to achieve the output required) or do I need to
consider different packages such as TRNSYS?

If somebody reading this "cry for help" has examples or even tutorials on
that particular subject (Energy Plus) please let me know!

Many thanks for your effort in advance!
