Description

For the automatic calculation of window frame U-values (Uf-Value; cf. also tutorial 4) and joint U-values (UTJ-Value; cf. also tutorial 5) all frame materials must be known.

Alternatively, you can also set the type and the orientation of the model in the dialog window, and then adapt the dimension manually by moving the position of the start points of the dimension objects using the Select, Move, Scale tool or the Edit tool respectively.

Subtype

Here, you set the orientation for the type 2 Constructions and 3 Constructions.

Material List

Here, you have to determine all the frame materials of the frame section which define the frame dimensions. The settings will be needed for the automatic calculation of frame U-values (Uf-value) according to EN ISO 10077-2 respectively for the automatic calculation of  joint U-values (UTJ-value) according to EN ISO 12631 .

Do not select seal materials between the frame, glass units, and/or panel, which were used instead of the glass units.
