Short reference

Main menu:

VAPOUR-option: Analysis of multidimensional vapour diffusion is only possible with an active VAPOUR-Option of the program.. VAPOUR Option in AnTherm

Input and data entry windows: Description, Element Editor, Materials, Surfaces, Element browser, Layers, Elements 2D, Snap grid, Translate, Rotate, Mirror, Stretch

The context menu of element processing (by pressing the right mouse button over Elements 2D, Element Editor, Element browser):

Element browser window (use functions of the context menu of element processing - by pressing the right mouse button over this window):

Element Editor: (use functions of the context menu of element processing - by pressing the right mouse button over this window - and a double-click over material or surface data will reveal Materials/Surfaces lists):

  • Use the TAB or Shift-TAB key to confirm data entered into the input field and to move the input focus between the fields and controls!
  • Use arrow keys when the element type input field is focused!
    • Empty Box – excavating element. Elements „underneath“, i.e. listed earlier in the element list are overlapped with "Nothing".
    • Material Box – a material cell has material properties, like conductance, assigned to it.
    • Space Box – represents Space. A Space cell is used to assign "heat transfer coefficient" to the surface of the construction and then, during evaluation, to assign air temperature as the boundary condition for the space.
    • Power Box – the Power-Box frame. Material elements „underneath“, i.e. listed earlier in the element list will be defined as power sources (in addition to its material property). These areas are then assigned power boundary condition during the evaluation.
  • Names of Spaces and Power Sources will be used to create the list of available boundary conditions during evaluation.
  • A double-click over material or surface data reveals Materials/Surfaces lists
  • Right mouse button: reveals the context menu of element processing.
  • Use the ENTER key while the button "Duplicate" is focused!

Windows of Materials und Surfaces are used to prepare of the later needed (and reusable) properties of Materials- or Surfaces:

  • A double-click transfer the selected property onto (selected) element(s)
  • Right mouse button: Shows Material- or Surface properties and the Insert/Delete functions.

Elements 2D Windows (use functions of the context menu of element processing - by pressing the right mouse button over this window):

Layer browser window: selection and editing of a Layer in a Layered 3D Project

Elements 3D window: Is used for continuous visual verification during creation of 3D models.

Boundary conditions window: Is used to enter boundary conditions for evaluation (e.g. temperatures). "Apply" start the superposition and the  evaluation.

Reports: Data Entry Report, Modelling Report, Result Report, Coupling Coefficients Report, Psi-Value Determination : Textual output of results

  • Menu File→Print: prints the report
  • Menu File→Export→Report: export/save the report as Acrobat PDF, Excel XLS, Word DOC
  • File→Export→Coupling Coeff. Matrix...: save the matrix of thermal coupling coefficients to a CSV file
  • Controls on the Toolbar: Zoom the display, print, export etc.

Results 3D window: 3D visualisation of temperature distribution, heat stream density, heat stream and surface humidity.

Extensive introduction and introductory tutorials, collections of pictures.

Validation according to EN ISO 10211:2007, Validation according to EN ISO 10077-2:2003

Further study of theory and background and primary concepts together with related literature.
