External surface temperature

Postby Al-Hafith » Wed Jun 13, 2018 11:09 am

Dear DesignBuilder support team

I need your help to make sure of the following point: I'm measuring external surfaces temperature in various shading scenarios.
1 - Is the measured surface temperature in the software's outputs is the average temperature of the whole surface?
2- I guess that the effective factors on that temperature are: solar incidents, shading and heat transfer from inside to outside. Is this true? can you confirm this, please?

Thank you
Best Regards
