I need help to model a framed wall construction.
I have read the "Composite Wall Construction" section of the I/O manual and cannot imagine that one is limited to the limited Dataset provided. I would like to know what definitions you are using for studed walls and your opinions on the precision.
We use double framed walls or stud walls with exterior insulation so I will need to come up with some reasonable model.
Any help would be appreciated.
extract from I/O manual: "For stud walls, using these composite constructions [from DATASET] will give more accurate heat flow than
you would get by manually dividing the wall into a stud section and a non-stud section. If your wallÃ¢??s exterior or interior rouroughness or thermal, solar or visible absorptances are different from those in the data set, you can make the appropriate changes to the first material (the outside layer) or the third material (the inside layer). None of the other values should be changed."
