THERM Software Downloads

Version 7.7.01 Beta
Released: November 12, 2018

Release Notes:

This version is NOT compatible with WINDOW 7.4 or 7.6. It is to be used with the latest version of WINDOW 7.

If you try to import THERM 7.7 files into versions of WINDOW pre-7.7, WINDOW may crash; in this case upgrade to the latest version of WINDOW 7.7 

We now have an online forum where you can ask questions and respond to questions by others.

Installation Notes
 

This version will not update THERM 7.6 versions -- it makes a completely new version

When you install this new version of THERM, a completely new set of directories is created, so that you can have other versions (THERM 7.4 and 7.6) installed at the same time. 

Redistributable Packages/Libraries that MUST BE installed before this version will run

It is necessary to download and then install the following "redistributable" software packages in order for this version of THERM to run.

 

Enhancements
 

Compiled with updated libraries

THERM  (and WINDOW) were compiled with Visual Studio 2017 and Intel Fortran Composed XE 2018. Hence the need to install these as redistributables when installing this new version

Better Scaling on high DPI (resolution)  monitors

Using the newer Microsoft Visual C++ components allowed better scaling on high resolution monitors. 

Glazing options

  • Program now always checks the base file for voids and overlaps and reports an error if it is detected, then does NOT generate the glazing options THERM files. The user needs to make sure the base file runs, then THERM will generate the glazing option files. This check happens for both the first and last option when calculating a base file (ie, create THM files and simulate all, or just create THM files)

  • THERM files generated for glazing options now include the “Source” WINDOW database in the “Glazing System Info” dialog box

Insert Glazing System

  • Program now saves the last-used glazing system parameters in the Insert Glazing System dialog box.

Converted to unicode

THERM has been converted to unicode

Bug Fixes

 

Preferences

  • Units problems -- fixed the issue where the “Default vertical jamb height” and “Mesh void tolerance” was not being updated properly when changing units

Insert Glazing System

  • Program now allows entering a value greater than 1 without a leading zero, ie, you can enter “.75” and not get an error

  • Program used to lose settings for "Sight line to bottom of glass" and "Spacer height" when the units were changed (SI to IP and back). This has been fixed.

  • IP units are no longer cut off in the Gap Properties / Keff feedback box

Version 7.6.01
Released: November 17, 2017

Release Notes:

This version is NOT compatible with WINDOW 7.4 or 7.5. It is to be used with the latest version of WINDOW 7.6 

If you try to import THERM 7.6 files into versions of WINDOW pre-7.6, WINDOW may crash; in this case upgrade to the latest version of WINDOW 7.6 

We now have an online forum where you can ask questions and respond to questions by others.

Enhancements
 

Glazing Options now works with shading systems

Previous versions of THERM did not apply the Shading Modifier in the Boundary Conditions for the files made from the Glazing Options feature. The program will now apply the Boundary Condition Shading Modifier to the Glazing System, but the user still needs to check each generated THERM file in order to apply the Shading Modifier to the appropriate frame components. 

THERM has a gray background when Radiance Mode = ON

THERM now has a gray background when the Radiance Mode (in Options/Preferences) is set to ON, so that it is possible to detect that setting, which generally is not used in most THERM simulations. 

Bug Fixes
 

Emissivity Changes in Boundary Conditions are now saved

In the previous version of THERM, when the Emissivity of a Boundary Condition segment was changed, the program would not save that change. That has been fixed.

 

Version 7.4.4
Released: December 19, 2016

Release Notes:

THERM 7.4.4

Fixed Bugs

Polygon below between glass blind has 0 conductivity

When importing a glazing system with a Venetian blind between two glass layers from WINDOW 7.4.8 into THERM 7.4.3, the polygon created from a non-zero "Sight line to shade edge" value had a conductivity = 0. This has been fixed. However, you must recalculate the glazing system in WINDOW before importing it into THERM.

Nominal glass rules in THERM should not be applied to shade layers

In previous versions of THERM 7.4, the nominal glass rules were applied to shading systems in THERM. This has now been fixed.

This version of THERM 7.4 is compatible with WINDOW version 7.4.14
