Hi everyone!

I'm using EnergyPlus v-9.0 and I'm trying to model a glazing material with "SpectralAndAngle" optical data type. I've started from a previous EnergyPlus model (working with no errors) and I've included in the model the Glazing Material found in the example file "SpectralAngularOpticalProperties_TableData", together with the tables (Table:TwoIndependentVariables) required for the definition of the solar transmittance, front reflection and back reflection. However, EnergyPlus crashes when I'm running the simulation. I've run the example file and everything is working. I've analyzed the differences between my file and the example file, and the main differences regard the HVAC system. However, I doubt that the HVAC system can influence the correct simulation of a glazing system. Am I missing some required input for the correct modelling of the glazing system?

Thanks everybody!


UPDATE: I think the problem is related to the use of the Table:TwoIndependentVariables. In fact, even if I'm not using the tables (they are not associated to any of the other part of the idf), EnergyPlus still crashes. Has anyone experienced the same problem?

Can you provide your IDF file (you can use Google Drive or Dropbox, for example)?
