Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
geo_geoA list of closed breps that represent the geometry of the buildings in the urban area that fall under this typology.Goo
program_programOne of the 16 building programs listed from the "DF Bldg Programs" component. The following options are available: FullServiceRestaurant Hospital LargeHotel LargeOffice MediumOffice MidRiseApartment OutPatient PrimarySchool QuickServiceRestaurant SecondarySchool SmallHotel SmallOffice StandAloneRetail StripMall SuperMarket WarehouseGoo
age_ageAn integer that sets the age of the buildings represented by this typology.

Choose from the following options: Pre-1980's 1980's-Present New ConstructionGoo
flr_to_flr_flr_to_flr_A number that sets the average distance between floors for the building typology. This will be used to compute the total floor area of the building, which ultimately determines the influence that the typology has on the urban microclimate.Goo
fract_canyon_fract_canyon_A number between 0 and 1 that represents the fraction of the building's waste heat from air conditioning that gets rejected into the urban canyon (as opposed to through rooftop equipment or into a ground source loop). The default is set to 0.5.Goo
