Running a large parametric study of around 8000 energy models I'm experiencing that some of idfs are unable to complete the simulation - freezing during simulation:

Given that the only idf files that freezes are some of the models that are containing a construction:complexFenestrationState with a shading layer I think this might be the cause of the hang.

Example idfs: Hang files

(Have attached 16 idfs)

Does anybody have an idea as to why?

Cheers Tobias

Open a github issue here and attach only your Sydney/MSA_bigOffice_WFR40_Orientation112.5/in.idf and Sydney/MSA_bigOffice_WFR40_Orientation112.5/In.epw. I confirmed there's a crash happening after updating this file to E+ 9.9.0, there's a division by zero happening at

Thank you for opening the Github Issue (and doing it by the book too!). I'm closing this question just for clarity since a GitHub Issue was opened.
