A `ThermalComponent` object is a part of the thermal boundary corresponding to
a homogeneous construction component (e.g. windows, wall, insulated part of a
wall etc.). Each `ThermalComponent` is characterized with their `Area`,
information whether it is coupled to ground (`isGroundCoupled`) and exposed to
sun (`isSunExposed`).

Each `ThermalComponent` must be characterized with its `Area`, and its position relative to the Terrain (attribute `relativeToTerrain` which it inherits from `_CityObject`).
Since `ThermalComponent` inherits from `_CityObject`, it can be associated to a
Since `ThermalComponent` inherits from `_CityObject`, it can also be associated to a
