Use this component to import the content of a LBNL WINDOW text file report as a series of polygons and boundary conditions that can be plugged into the "Write THERM File' component.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Window Glz Sys Report_windowGlzSysReportA filepath to a detailed galzing system text file report exportedby WINDOW.Goo
Location_location_An optional plane or point to set the location of the glazing system in the Rhino scene. The default is set to the Rhino origin and in the XY plane.Goo
Orientation_orientation_An integer that sets the orientation of the window in the Rhino scene. Choose from the following options that correspond with THERM's options: 0 = Up 1 = Down 2 = Left 3 = RightGoo
Sight Line To Glz Bottom_sightLineToGlzBottom_A number in Rhino model units that represents the distance from the bottom of the glass pane to the end of the frame (where the 'edge of glass' starts). The default is set to 12.7 mm.Goo
Spacer Height_spacerHeight_A number in Rhino model units that represents the distance from the bottom of the glass pane to the end of the spacer. The default is set to 12.7 mm.Goo
Edge Of Glass Dim_edgeOfGlassDim_A number in Rhino model units that represents the distance from the start of the frame to the start of the 'center of glass' zone. This 'edge of glass' zone typically has a U-Value that is higher than the rest of the glass. The default is set to 63.5 mm.Goo
Glz System Height_glzSystemHeight_A number in Rhino model units that represents the height to make the glazing system in the Rhino scene. The default is set to 150 mm.Goo
Spacer MaterialspacerMaterial_An optional material that will be used to create a spacer for the glazing system. If no material is input here, no psacer will be created.Goo

Outputs

NameIDDescriptionType
OutreadMe!...String
Therm PolygonsthermPolygonsThe therm polygons for the glazing system.Goo
Indoor BCsindoorBCsThe thermBCs that represent the interior side of the glazing system, including separate boundary conditions for the edge of frame and center of glass. Note that a boundary condition for with the 'Frame' UFactorTag must be made separately.Goo
Outdoor BCoutdoorBCA single thermBC that represents the exterior side of the glazing system. This includes the exterior conditions taken from the report.Goo
Indoor PropertiesindoorPropertiesA list of properties for the interior boundary condition in the following order: Name, temperature, film coefficient. These can be used to create a boundary condition for the 'Frame.'Goo
Outdoor PropertiesoutdoorPropertiesA list of properties for the exterior boundary condition in the following order: Name, temperature, film coefficient. These can be used to create a boundary condition that includes the frame of the window.Goo
Cog UValuecogUValueA value representing the "center of glass" U-value for the imported WINDOW glazing construction in SI units (W/m2-K). This output can be used in conjunction with the "Honeybee_Assembly Uvalue" component to calculate the full U-value of a window assembly.Goo
SHGCSHGCThe solar heat gain coefficient of the WINDOW glazing construction.Goo
VTVTThe visible transmittance of the WINDOW glazing construction.Goo
