I have a double pane simple window with an in-between blind. How should I find out the u-value and SHGC of the glazing system when the blind is on? When I run the modeling the tables just show the u-value and SHGC for the glazing system without the blind.

Thank you for your suggestion.

I would simulate the blind as shading and the U value according to the glazing construction.

@obuchely Thanks for the suggestion, but I don't think it works. I have a horizontal blind 45 degree open. Is it possible to be modelled as a shade?
