Partition Heat Flow, Hevacomp

Hi. 

I have a room completely joined and surrounded by other rooms. I have set the temperature of all these rooms to be the same. Yet the central room has a temperature differences across its partition's to the other rooms.

How is this possible? 

Many Thanks.

  • Hi Omar,

    The rooms will have heat flow as they have different occupancies / gains defined, according to their characteristics such as area and room type.

    Are you referring to the Design Temperatures in the room data? If so these are used thereafter to compute the required air flow in the calcs (eg at end of CIBSE Gain calc).

    Regards,

    Shane
