Rad material and energyplus


Is there a way to use “radOpaqueMaterial” (and its properties) with energy plus?


No. Radiance and Energy+ are two separate tracks for material definitions.


Thank you Abraha

So why Hb_context has an input called RAD material? I cannot figure out…

thank you in advance


This enables you to use the context also for radiance simulations. So you can assign the material of this geometry.


Does the use of rad material change energy result?
I am trying to set the colour to EPmaterial bud didn’t know how?
can you help me

No. It doesn’t. As said above, they are 2 different things not affecting each other.
