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

I have tried using an incredibly small convective coefficient and have been getting severe errors, however I havent tried using an IRTransparent wall yet. I might actually try doing that. Thank you Jean for this idea. I had not thought about it yet. 
I will try it. Thank you Linda too for lending your expertise. Any other innovative ideas are more than welcome. 

Sincerely yours'

I think IRT surfaces cannot be used with ConductionFiniteDifference algorithm though now you can assign single surfaces algorithms so maybe you can get around that limitation.

How about splitting the zone into 2 zones seperated with an IRTransparent wall. I believe the energy transfered by the IRTransparent wall is treated the same as diffuse radiation...or?

Remember to set the convection coeff. to very small so that it does not participate in convection to the zone.
