My question is about the "grid spacing" input of the grid component.
As most standards give maximum values for the grid dimensions I was wondering how DIVA deals with it.
Will it be an average value, a maximum value, ... ?
Thank you for your reply.
PS: At the following link are some information about the grid size for LEEDS standard:
Grids are divided along isocurves of the generating surface. DIVA picks a whole number of divisions that most closely matches the requested spacing, so, to answer your question, it's more of an average than a maximum. This means you should err on the side of caution, and not use the exact maximum spacing for a LEED study. (Which, for LEEDv4, is 60cm.)
Note that, if your generating surface is lofted or non-planar, the isocurves may not be parallel -- so there may be significant variation in sensor spacing across the grid.
Thank's a lot for your answer.
