I would like to run a simulation of a test cell which has one changable wall. I need to run multiple simulations with the same confiuration, but one of the walls materials is going to vary.

It would be very similar to this paper:

In each of your simulation you need to modify the construction introducing the variable material It’s possible to do it also using Jeplus

Do I modify the construction in SketchUp? I couldn't find anything in OpenStudio. Could you send me a print or some information with more details? I will try to use Jeplus, but it seems to be a difficult program to use.

Thanks for your help!

Maybe I found where to change the material based on what you answered. Could you tell me if what I did in the print is correct?

Indeed, it is covered in the second tutorial video here:
