measure arguments for create_bar_from_building_type_ratios

Hello UH community,

I'm using the ComStock measures to generate typical building models. My process always begins with these measures from the ComStock GitHub repo:

  1. ChangeBuildingLocation
  2. simulation_settings
  3. create_bar_from_building_type_ratios
  4. create_typical_building_from_model

I was hoping someone could point me towards a detailed description of the measure arguments for create_bar_from_building_type_ratios. In particular I'd like to better-understand what these arguments do/mean:

  • perim_mul
  • bar_sep_dist_mult
  • bar_division_method
  • double_loaded_corridor
  • space_type_sort_logic

The best description I found so far is in this create_bar.rb ruby file, but I still don't understand them.

Thanks, James

The README from the original measure implementation has fairly detailed explanations of those inputs.
