Hello to everyone!
I'm preparing my final thesis for graduation, and I started studying how to make evaluations of my models.
Anyhow, my project is composed of a central building (simple concrete structure) and a double ventilated facade (the main topic of my research) which serves as main source for cooling the building thanks to the air flow passing through it. I was wondering: is it possible to make an evaluation by telling Archicad to calculate also this factor? Like maybe creating a special zone in the inner space between the two walls, or any other way?
I leave you here some screenshots of a simplified example, explaining actually what is the general structure of the design.
Thanks in advance for the help, and I hope to solve this problem!
