Construction Components

The thermal properties of the construction are calculated based on layers, each layer having a material reference and thickness. The combination of thickness and material gives the thermal characteristics of the layer. Layers  can include repeating thermal bridges.


Construction components also store derived data on the thermal properties of the overall layered construction for example U-value, convective heat transfer coefficients etc.
