This model contains a completely mixed fluid volume and models that take into account the pressure difference of a medium column that is at the same temperature as the fluid volume. It can be used to model the pressure difference caused by a stack effect.

Typical use and important parameters

Set the parameter use_HeatTransfer=true to expose a heatPort. This heatPort can be used to add or subtract heat from the volume. This allows, for example, to use this model in conjunction with a model for heat transfer through walls to model a solar chimney that stores heat.


For a steady-state model, use Buildings.Airflow.Multizone.MediumColumn instead of this model.

In this model, the parameter h must always be positive, and the port port_a must be at the top of the column.
