Re: [EnergyPlus_Support] Re: Internal Partitions do not participate in blocking solar radiation?

Perhaps, although I'm not sure if shading surfaces will interact the way you want with respect to convection exchange with the zone air heat balance, and inter-surface radiation exchange.  It'd be worth a try...

Um yeah, I am using the "FullInteriorAndExterior" model. I am thinking maybe I should model the partitions as ShadingSurfaces as opposed to Partitions itself? Any thoughts Jean and Edwin.

Thank you for looking into this for me.

Crazy question, but you are using the solar distribution model "FullInteriorAndExterior" and not just "FullExterior" right?
