[EnergyPlus_Support] Re: EnergyPlus validation

I have have done some benchmarks of EnergyPlus against some of the 
OSU data.  I found it to be time well spent as I learned a lot about 
EnergyPlus and the sensitivity to the various input parameters.

The results are similar to those reported in the 2003 ASHRAE paper 
by Chantrasrisalia, Lu, Fisher and Eldridge.  The OSU test building 
has a lot of window area and relatively high air flow rates.  The 
results are sensitive to the radiative heat transfer properties and 
also to the inside convection cooeficient.  The the CeilingDiffuser 
model for inside surface heat transfer seems to work well.  Both the 
cooling load and the floor surface temperatures matched the 
experimental data very well.
