Hi Ecotect users and Autodesk support,
I have been running Thermal Analysis - Hourly Heat Gains/Losses Calculations and was just wondering about something that you might know.
After the calculation, in the table tab I see the variable called FABRIC and a bunch of values for it. Is FABRIC the whole wall system? And if there are windows in the wall, how does it affect the FABRIC and its value? Are windows some how factored in FABRIC?
Thank you in advance
Fabric loses include all loses through the building envelope; walls, windows, roof, etc (Anything adjacent to the outside zone). However, please note that ECOTECT does not seem to calculate any loses for any underground zones.
