Using DOE-2.2 furniture weight to model in-space thermal storage

1 post / 0 new

I am involved in a refrigerated warehouse project where the design
includes substantial thermal mass within the space to be used as thermal

I am playing with the FURN-WEIGHT keyword in order to investigate
whether the thermal response changes -- but the change I am seeing with
a considerable increase in furniture weight is nearly negligible.

There is also a keyword WEIGHTING-FACTOR but I cannot find documentation
on this keyword in the DOE-2.2 help file or see where the custom
weighting factors are in the library.

Are there limits to what DOE-2.2 can model in terms of thermal mass?

Insights are very welcome.

Thank you for any suggestions, guidance or places to look.
