Calculation Viewer - Calculation Menu

The Calculation Menu provides access to several calculation engine settings, Daylight specific settings and a detailed Summary of the current calculation. Additionally, you can Pause and Cancel a calculation in progress. Changes to the Settings or Daylighting are only allowed while initially calculating and viewing a calculation from AGi32 or ElumTools. Once a Licaso file is saved these settings cannot be edited.

Settings

Details can be found in same section of the ElumTools Help online.

Daylighting

This menu selection provides access to the daylight parameters originally set in AGi32 or ElumTools (project site location, orientation and weather station specification). If the file has been computed and saved in Licaso, the dialog settings will be gray and inactive. Use the active callouts below to link to more information on these topics in the ElumTools Help.

Site Latitude - This text box echoes the Latitude coordinates for the site location, as chosen from the Revit project, the AGi32 Daylighting dialog, or the Sites database. Alternatively, the latitude may be entered manually. Latitude information is entered in decimal degrees. Latitude is measured north and south from the equator. A positive entry denotes North, a negative entry denotes South. Alternatively, a compass direction can be specified after the angle. Example: 40 N. or 40, 40 S or -40.

 

Site Longitude - This text box echoes the Longitude coordinates for the site location, as chosen from the Revit project, the AGi32 Daylighting dialog, or the Sites database. Alternatively, the longitude may be entered manually. Longitude information is in decimal degrees. Longitude is measured east and west from the Prime Meridian, (the meridian that runs through Greenwich, England). A positive entry denotes West, a negative entry denotes East. Alternatively, a compass direction can be specified after the angle. Example: 105 W. or 105.

 

True North - True North for the site location is specified counterclockwise (CCW) from the positive X-Axis. NOTE: This is different from the Revit True North which is specified CCW from the positive Y-axis. Therefore, a Revit True North setting of 0 degrees is identical to an ElumTools or AGi32 True North setting of 90 degrees. ElumTools and AGi32 behavior is consistent with IES LM-72-03 (R2010) "Directional Positioning of Photometric Data".

 

Summary

The Summary provides specific details of the calculation execution time for various stages of the process, radiosity calculation details and an environment summary.
