Overheat Study Edinburgh
Dynamic Thermal Modelling & Overheat Study- Edinburgh
– Detailed dynamic thermal modelling
– Overheat Analysis (Domestic TM59)
– Advice on solar gain mitigation
– U-Value Calculations for compliance
Services- The initial design had some large South facing glazed areas and the design team correctly identified that an overheat study would be needed to test some design ideas before the project got to construction stage. Luths Services provided calculations as per the CIBSE TM59 domestic overheating assessment.
Dynamic Thermal modelling allows for detailed inputs including fabric, ventilation airflow, solar and equipment gains, pattern of use, local and external shading devices and accurate window opening characteristics to show immediate assessment of the complex interaction between all these factors in near real time (10 minute resolution accuracy). This assists the team in making the correct decisions for the client’s comfort and budget.
