Code to determine the U/R value of a construction

antonszilasi's avatar

I would like to write a test which takes a OpenStudio construction and determines its U/R value for the purpose of automated testing.

I'm sure that I could devise this code but I am wondering if it already exists in some form or another? If so could someone please point me to it?

Many thanks!

The .thermalConductance() and .uFactor() methods on the ConstructionBase object return these values in SI units. See the OpenStudio SDK for the ConstructionBase object.

Example method to report out these values for each construction here.
