U-Value Style

Description

This style is used when you are working with the U-Value tool. The U-value style consists of a section line (line segment with two end point markers), and of a connected label line.

 

Fields

General Tab

Name

Here, you define the name of the style. You cannot leave this field empty; the chosen name must be unique, i.e. not identical to another existing name. Aside from these limitations, you are free to choose any name.

Click on the language abbreviation in this field to set the name in all supported languages.

Digits

Number of decimal places or significant digits, which are to be displayed. The kind - Decimal Points or Significant - you can select using the adjacent drop down-list.

Thousands delimiter

The digits left of the decimal point will be grouped into thousands.

Show Units

The appropriate units will be shown after each numerical value. The units can be adjusted in the Units tab of the Options dialog window.

Show result symbols

The appropriate symbol (dependent on the type of value) will be shown before each numerical value.

Style

Here, you determine whether the label line should be a simple or an orthogonal (right angle bent) line.

Line

This setting group determines the properties of label lines (color, style, size and type).

Note that some of the lines cannot be shown when their thickness exceeds 0.394 mm.

End Point Markers

Here, you can define how both ends of the label line should look like. There are two drop down lists that show the different possibilities.

Extended Tab

Line

This setting group determines the properties of the section lines (color, style, size and type).

Note that some of the lines cannot be shown when their thickness exceeds 0.394 mm.

End Point Markers

Here, you can define how the ends of the section line (segment lines) should look like. There are two drop down lists that show the different possibilities. The same style is used for both ends of the line segment.

Use custom boundary conditions

When this option is active, then the U-value calculation is done with the user defined boundary condition and not with the boundary condition defined in the object. The chosen boundary condition is shown on the U-value object.

he

Here, you define the exterior heat transfer coefficient for the calculation of the U-value, if you are not going to use the value already defined in the object.

hi

Here, you define the interior heat transfer coefficient for the calculation of the U-value, if you are not going to use the value already defined in the object.
