Heat transfer coefficient
« on: September 05, 2011, 02:48:08 am »

Good morning everybody.

Got the same questiona as "cortomaltese".
The fds-5 User Guide says it is possible to set a value for the heat transfer coefficient.
Can I kindly ask you how can I manage it in Pyrosim.

I thank you in advance.

Unfortunately, PyroSim 2010 does not support the SURF parameter H_FIXED. Currently, the best workaround is to create your model without using the option, then use the record view to:

(1) copy the SURF(s) and referencing OBST(s) down to Additional Records,
(2) delete the now-duplicate records from the model, and
(3) specify the H_FIXED parameter on the SURF(s).
