CD601.2 Block Geometry
The geometry of buildings shall be configured using one or more blocks. Each block shall define attributes including block dimensions, number of floors, floor-to-floor height and floor-to-ceiling height. Simulation software may allow the use of simplified shapes (such as rectangle, L shape, H Shape, U shape or T shape) to represent blocks. Where actual building shape does not match these pre-defined shapes, simplifications are permitted providing the following requirements are met:
The creation of additional blocks may be necessary to meet these requirements.
Exception: Portions of the building that are unconditioned or served by systems not covered by the requirements of Section C403.1.1 shall be omitted.
