Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] high surface temperature
Thank you for the offer. See the attached file.
Let me explain the situation a little bit. For the
west and east exterior walls, I used 4 inch brick
outside and 3 inch insulation inside. South, north
walls and floors are interior walls. Ceiling is
exposed to outside weather. 4 cooling design days are
simulated. For the hottest day (1st day), at the cool
night(25C outside), MRT in the room arrives 35C. At
the hottest time, the south wall and west wall are
about 2 C higher than the inside air temperature.
It is true that there is not much ventilation. But I
still suspected about the initialization, and I want
to know how to eliminate the initialization effect for
