Specify the type of surface in the Energy Balance Chart

Hello everyone

I was able to make the energy balance chart as shown at “http://hydrashare.github.io/hydra/viewer?owner=chriswmackey&fork=hydra_2&id=Energy_Balance&slide=1&scale=1&offset=0,0
But I would like to break the opaque conduction into walls, roof and floor. Is that possible?
An other issue is that I would like to analyze a specify day hourly, not monthly.

Check the result file for the values for each surface. Not sure if we have an automated workflow for that.

@Linda ,

Yes, this is definitely possible. There’s a component called “Honeybee_Surface Data Based on Type” that is meant to help with these types of workflows. I know the attached example isn’t the cleanest Grasshopper script but it shows how you can use this component to get an energy balance that includes separate wall, roof, and floor terms:
