A Deemed-To-Satisfy Assessment for a wall undertakes a simulation as per Specifications J1.5a. This feature undertakes the same calculations as the ABCB Façade Calculator and provides the minimum performance requirements for wall and glazing components of a wall-glazing construction. Through the provision of concept glazing, area and shading, both glazing and wall performance is combined to illustrate compliance.
To undertake a Deemed-To-Satisfy Assessment, select ‘Deemed-To-Satisfy’ in the results area and click ‘Settings’. Next, select the Glazing Wall Ratio, Glazing U-Value, Shading Projection, Shading Gap and Aspect. Click ‘Update’ and then ’Run 1 Calculation’. Once complete, Wall-glazing U-value, Glazing Solar Admittance and Wall Total R-value results are presented numerically and set against the local building code minimum requirements.
