Hello everyone! I'm trying to get Surface temperatures from energyPlus. I tried to use the IDF file because i'm no good with the prompt window (I'm also creating a question in the forum about that). So after creating my 4 floors building, i've also created a slab, but I can't really find a way to answer the "SLAB BOUNDARY CONDITION MODEL NAME". Is it maybe requesting a Bounday condition previously requested by the program? In the InputOutputReference there are 2 examples with the same Boundary condition, but it doesn't work on my case, therefore I think that it's bonded to something I've inserted before.

Thanks in advance!

Hi, to fulfill the the slab boundary condition model name, we must first choose how the other side of the slab will be modeled. To do so, see the SurfaceProperty:OtherSideConditionsModel object.

Best regards,
