I want to simulate with Energy2d the cooling of a house featuring a cantilevered balcony when it is unheated and the exterior is 0°C. I could set the environment temperature via the model properties set to 0°C on all sides (model properties/boundary) but could not make the interior temperature start at 20°C.

What I tried was to put a heat source inside the house and wait for the interior to reach 20°C but it required too much time. I also tried to set the slab temperature to 20°C (properties/source/temperature) but then the slab temperature did not evolve and remained at 20°C throughout the simulation (the outside part should be less than 20°C).

So how to set the initial temperature of a element in Energy2D ?

Any help appreciated,
