This document outlines how Hevacomp Simulator can help with BREEAM assessments.
The Frequency simulation within the Design Simulator program can be used to calculate the hourly results of room temperatures for the entire year. These results can be displayed numerically or shown as a temperature frequency curve. This allows BREEAM section HEA.04 to be fulfilled.
On the 'Display Numeric Results' tab, the below TM52 option can be used to display a summary of overheating criterion 1, 2 and 3.
BREEAM also requires that Design Simulation software has an associated AM11 Building Energy and Environmental modeling document (CIBSE). The AM11 document pertaining to Bentley Hevacomp Design Simulator can be found here.
