Residential building geometry

Building geometries for the residential DEER prototypes are sourced from the original DEER models created in DOE2, and are translated from DOE2 to CSE format.

Modifications from DEER Geometry

The building geometry in the original DEER models varied the floor, wall, and window area by climate zone due to the extensive analysis that was conducted to generate the DEER models. For simplification, the floor, wall, and window area that was most common among the climate zones is used for all climate zones in the prototype models, and no shading objects are included.

Software to render CSE geometry in a visual format is not currently available.
