# SURFACEPROPERTY:EXPOSEDFOUNDATIONPERIMETER

Defines the perimeter of a foundation floor that is exposed to the exterior environment through the floor. User may either define the total exposed perimeter, fraction of perimeter exposed or individually define which segments of the floor surface perimeter are exposed.

##### Surface Name

Type: list of objects

FLOOR:INTERZONE)

##### Exposed Perimeter Calculation Method

Type: choice
(TotalExposedPerimeter, ExposedPerimeterFraction or BySegment)

Choices: TotalExposedPerimeter => total exposed perimeter in meters ExposedPerimeterFraction => fraction of total perimeter that is exposed. Value * Fraction = Total exposed perimeter BySegment => define whether the segment between each set of consecutive vertices of the floor surface is exposed. SUM(exposed segement lengths) = Total exposed perimeter
