Multizone short wave exchanges, building simulation


A simplified model of indoor short wave couplings adapted to multi-zone simulation context is proposed, thanks to simplifying hypothesis and the introduction of an indoor short wave exchange matrix. Through specific properties of this matrix, it appears as a useful step to quantify exchanges between zones separated by windows or large openings. Integrated in CODYRUN software, this module is detailed and compared to experimental measurements carried out on a real scale tropical building.
