Use this component to adjust the U-value an EP construction without any thermal bridges to account for birdges by adjusting the condutivity of one of the materials.

Inputs

NameIDDescriptionType
Original EPConstruction_originalEPConstructionAn EP construction that does not have any thermal bridges associated with it.Goo
Therm Bridged UValue_thermBridgedUValueThe U-value in SI units (W/m2-K) that you would like the whole construction assembly to be adjusted to. This U-value should include the resistance of air films on either side of the construction assembly, which is included by default in the output from THERM simulations.Goo
Material To Adjust_materialToAdjustThe name of a material within the _originalEPConstruction that you would like to have the conductivity adjusted to meet the _thermBridgedUValue.Goo
Custom Name_customName_An optional custom name to be added to the new thermally bridged material and construction.Goo
