Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Re: material's properties

thank you for your links
I searched in 2009 ASHRAE  and DOE-2 software has a library of materials and EnergyPlusV6-0-0\DataSets but none them hasn't
-Thermal absorptance
-Solar Absorptance
-Visible Absorptance
where can I find these items ?

There's an entire database of materials and constructions (from ASHRAE and other sources) in C:\EnergyPlusV6-0-0\DataSets (if you install in the default location for V6). 
You can use IDF Editor to open and copy materials and constructions to your IDF.  (Hint, the datasets should come up with only the input fields that are in the dataset.  If not, hit the Ctrl and L buttons. It will toggle between all objects and only those with data.)

Here are some sources:

- 2009 ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals (I cannot remember the page on top of my head)
- DOE-2 software has a library of materials with characteristics
- Sustainable Home Refurbishment, David Thorpe, Earthscan expert issues (p 23) (mostly residential).

Hope this helps,
