I was setting two objects (the ground and an adiabatic brep) as boundary conditions for a building in Archsim. but I am still not sure how to make EnergyPlus take them into consideration. I had a look to the following discussion but it partially solved my problem
My question is to which components should I connect the ground other than the BC? I have tried to connect it to a face then a thermal zone component but I couldn't find it in the idf file and the EPlus returns a severe error "GetSurfaceData: Zone has no surfaces, Zone=GROUND0".
If anyone can explain how to set the BC (maybe with an example), it will be great.
