I've created a sketchup model geometry of a house that has kitchen, living room and several rooms and spaces. When I assign a single thermal zone for the whole house, the simulation runs perfectly; but when I assign several thermal zones for the different spaces, the simulation crashes. Can I anyone advise me how to proceed ?

Need more details on why the simulation is failing. Please tag the software you are using. If you are using OpenStudio, please see this page to see the eplusout.err file. Open with a text editor and look for the Fatal error and the Severe errors that lead to that.

Thanks David for the advice, but I finally managed to sort my problem out. I forgot to add a diffuser (Air Terminal Single Duct element) for each of the thermal zones my loop. Another question for you. How can I export simulation results to Excel ?
