How to solve the ceiling and interior floor materials in Honeybee?

  • How to solve the software error in HB Interior Constrution Subset? : ceiling does not have materials in reversed order of the interior_floor.
    This can cause issues if the resulting constr_set is applied across multiple Rooms.

That’s not an error. It’s just a warning that your interior floor and interior ceiling constructions are not matched with one another in terms of their material layers. So, if you apply this ConstructionSet to two Rooms that are vertically adjacent to one another (sharing a floor/ceiling), you will get a simulation failure from EnergyPlus. If you aren’t applying the ConstructionSet to a case like this, then you’ll be fine and you can ignore the warning.

FYI, if you are planning to apply the ConstructionSet to Rooms that share a floor/ceiling, just make sure that the material layers of the interior floor and ceiling constructions have reversed material layers from one another.

Dear Chris, I got an error like this 1. Input interior_wall is asymmetric (materials in reversed order do not equal those in the current order). This can cause issues if the resulting constr_set is applied across multiple Rooms. Do you know how to solve it? Thank you
