I have migrated to the new OpenBuildings Designer Suite but cannot find the menu for allowing a temperature rise as shown below from the old Hevacomp software, is there a manual which shows where this can be input in OpenBuildings Designer?
The design conditions for the CIBSE Gain in Energy Simulator can be found as shown here. The Temperature Rise function is not available however, so I will request that our development team add this option to the software. Thank you for bringing this to our attention. For your information I have recently requested an Enhancement to be completed by development so that a menu more akin to Hevacomp's CIBSE Gain menu be created, so I will add your request to this.

Thanks for clarifying Shane
Was this change implemented with the latest updates?
Shane is out of office, hence I thought of feeling in.
The latest version of OpenBuildings Energy Simulator (10.09.01.38) offers the opportunity to allow the temperature rise in CIBSE calculations. See below:
You can update or download the latest version from the link here.
I hope this helps, please let me know.
Is this option available under CIBSE Heat Gain Calculation options?
Oh yes it does, see below:
I have updated the software and the options are now visible, many thanks.
