I'm developing a research with a model made in Sketch Up with the Euclid plugin from Energy Plus, however my research is about thermal performance in a small habitation, using a vertical green system as green walls or green facade.

Not to start a new topic - the question is general for all surfaces, floors as well. Theoretically, the main mechanism we are interested in is an evaporative cooling of a porous wet layer (soil+grass or leaves in case of a green wall). So, how can we do it?

Duplicate question of this post. According to EnergyPlus documentation, using the green roof module for walls is not recommended.
