Hi

Actually i am doing my dissertation on Energy analysis by using archicad 17.
I have created the model of the building , however i am trying to run the energy evaluation model and it said that the project does not contain any thermal block.

Could you tell me what i have to do.

Thanks a lot

Read about the Energy Evaluation feature here:

http://helpcenter.graphisoft.com/guides/archicad-18-int-reference-guide/energy-evaluation/

This page talks about the exact Energy Evaluation workflow, its various steps that need to follow each other:

And this is where it starts to talk about thermal blocks, a concept within Energy Evaluation, one of the steps of the Energy Evaluation workflow is that you group your Zone elements into various Thermal Blocks that have similar characteristics from an Energy Evaluation standpoint:
