## Buildings.Types.Azimuth

List of possible constant values for surface azimuth

### Information

Collection of constant values to define the azimuth of a surface. For example, if an exterior wall is South oriented, i.e., its outside-facing surface is towards South, use `Buildings.Types.Azimuth.S`.

Extends from Modelica.Icons.TypesPackage (Icon for packages containing type definitions).

### Package Content

Name Description
S=0 Azimuth for an exterior wall whose outer surface faces south
SW=+Modelica.Constants.pi/4 Azimuth for an exterior wall whose outer surface faces south-west
W=+Modelica.Constants.pi/2 Azimuth for an exterior wall whose outer surface faces west
NW=+Modelica.Constants.pi*3/4 Azimuth for an exterior wall whose outer surface faces north-west
N=Modelica.Constants.pi Azimuth for an exterior wall whose outer surface faces north
NE=-Modelica.Constants.pi*3/4 Azimuth for an exterior wall whose outer surface faces north-east
E=-Modelica.Constants.pi/2 Azimuth for an exterior wall whose outer surface faces east
SE=-Modelica.Constants.pi/4 Azimuth for an exterior wall whose outer surface faces south-east
