CSE User's Manual

California Simulation Engine


An AFMETER object is a user-defined “device” that records zone air flows as simulated by CSE. The user defines AFMETERs and assigns them to zones (see ZONE znAFMtr).

Air flow is recorded in standard air cfm (density 0.075 lb/ft3) at subhour, hour, day, month, and year intervals. At intervals of an hour and longer, values are averaged. Flows are categorized according to IZXFER izAFCat.

If any AFMETERs are defined, an additional AFMETER “sum_of_AFMETERs” is automatically created where the sums of all user-define AFMETERs are accumulated.

Note that only AirNet flows are recorded.

AFMETER results can be REPORTed using rpType=AFMTR (or EXPORTed using exType=AFMTR). See Air Flow Meter Report.
