Shades for EXTERIOR WALLS in HAP

Shades for EXTERIOR WALLS in HAP

(OP)
Hello Professionals,

I'm in need to calculate the cooling load of a portable container (18m x 7m) that is placed inside a completely shaded area. That is the container is placed inside a workshop. The workshop is roofed with corrugated metal sheet (w/o any insulation). Now, using HAP, I need to calculate the cooling load for the container. Here the four sides of the container are NOT exposed to SUN.

Would anyone suggest me some ideas for calculating the load?

Please do ask if any other information needed. Thanks in advance for the support.

RE: Shades for EXTERIOR WALLS in HAP

HAP has the ability built-in.
  1. Calculate and note the U-value of the walls and roof of the container.
  2. In the space Properties Windows, click the Partitions tab at the top.
  3. Here you can input 2 Partitions, use one for the ceiling, use one for the walls.
  4. Input areas, U-values, and indicated temperatures.
For the walls, since they do not see the sun direction does not matter and you can group all walls together.

I should hope it goes without saying that the Walls and Roofs tabs have no inputs.

Thanks a lot! @dbill74.

You're welcome.
That partitions tab is easy to overlook as it is not often used.
