Weather Data Revit mep

Earlier in the chapter, we discussed building type, service type, and building construction, but another major component of energy analysis is the physical location of the building. The location determines environmental conditions such as outdoor air temperature and humidity and also ASHRAE climate zone data. To define the building location, …

Load Analysis Revit mep

You now have a complete building modeled, and you are ready to analyze. The next step is to verify and specify, if needed, the building energy parameters, as shown in Figure 8.13. On the Analyze tab, click the Heating And Cooling Loads button. The Heating And Cooling Loads window appears …

Performing Heating and Cooling Load Analysis Revit mep

Now you have all your design spaces created and respective parameters, conditioning systems, and space constructions defined. The next step is to pull all this data together into a heating and cooling load analysis report to tell you how this particular building will perform throughout the year. You will then …

Building Construction Revit mep

Now all the spaces within your design building are placed, the internal data identified, and the spaces grouped into zones ready for the heating and cooling data to be analyzed. The next step is to investigate the physical construction of your building′s exterior and interior walls, roofs, ceilings, glazing, doors, …

Zones Revit mep

The next step in generating HVAC loads for your design building is to group similar spaces into zones. The main purpose of zoning spaces in an HVAC system is to provide controllability of the space′s air quality or condition. A single terminal unit, heat pump, or air-handling unit can control …

Modifying Space Properties Revit mep

You will notice that the program defaults to a generic space naming and numbering convention when placing spaces. It also sets the Space Type and Construction Type values as <Building>, indicating that the spaces will be modeled generically by relying on default global building characteristics that are defined in the …

Space Properties Schedule Revit mep

When simulating the heating and cooling loads of a building, correctly modeling and accounting for space usage can be time-consuming. Often, design loads have to be revisited because of inaccurate or incomplete accounting of space usage, components, internal loading, or design changes of the space use. Creating a working schedule …

Placing Spaces Revit mep

Revit allows you to locate spaces within your model in two ways: placing spaces manually or letting Revit locate and place spaces automatically. If your design building is complex, allowing the program to place the spaces automatically for you will save time. Be sure that all the spaces created are …

Space Modeling Revit mep

Before any HVAC loads can be run, spaces need to be created in the project file. Why? It seems redundant to create spaces seeing as how the architectural model already has rooms created and defined, right? Not so. In Revit MEP, spacesare created from room-bounding elements such as walls, floors, …

Modeling Spaces for Building Load Analysis Revit mep

The key to any successful building load analysis lies with accurately modeling the spaces within the building. Components that need to be modeled for each space include, but are not limited to, building construction, such as walls, roof, and floor slab, external shading and windows; internal loads, such as the …
