Default Convection algorithim

Hi all,

I have a question about the convection algorithm used in HoneyBee. I noticed that I could change these with the component “Honeybee Set Zone Properties”, with the inputs “inConvAlg_” and “outConvAlg_”.

The description of the component says that by delafult, all the inputs will be calculated by EP, but what does that mean for the convection algorithim ?

Does anyone know what default algorithm will be set by HoneyBee for an exterior surface (glass and/or opaque surface) and for an interior surface ?

Thanks

Hi @Vincent, You can always open the idf file in such cases and see the default values set by Honeybee / OpenStudio / EnergyPlus
