Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] out of bonds part4
There are many warnings about ceiling surfaces with a tilt of 180
instead of 0:
** Warning ** Roof/Ceiling Tilt=180.0, much greater than expected
tilt of 0, for Surface=P-1 Z1 CEILING001/9, in Zone=PISO -1 ZONA1
This means that the order of the vertices is reversed from what it
should be. This can cause some radiant transfer problems which may
be what is causing the surface temperature to go out of bounds.
To fix the ceiling surfaces which are upside down, simply reverse the
order of the vertices. Take vertices 1,2,3,4, and change it to
The surface details report is very helpful in checking geometry:
Report, surfaces, details;
This produces a listing in the eio file which summarizes all surfaces
by area, tilt, azimuth, etc. It is comma separated and may be more
easy to read by pasting it into a spreadsheet and splitting on commas.
