Revision history [back]

Currently, air walls are translated to a single layer of drywall in EnergyPlus simulation:

The grand plan in OpenStudio is to eventually add parameters to the OS:AirWallMaterial such as:

  • Create Interior Window (True/False)
  • Zone Mixing Per Area (m^3/s*m^2)
  • EnergyPlus Simulation Material (Name of other material)

These parameters would control how air walls are translated to EnergyPlus. However, we have not gotten to this yet.
