In these videos you will be shown how to populate a Virtual Environment project with profiles, thermal template data and constructions in preparation for performing dynamic thermal simulations (ApacheSim), thermal load calculations (ApacheCalc or ApacheLoads) or UK/Republic of Ireland compliance analyses using the VE Compliance tools.

You will be shown how to apply construction and thermal data to the building within the Apache view, and how to modify this data for the building. You will see how to set fuel carbon emission data, define renewables, and set the location and weather data. We will then run a dynamic thermal simulation.
