Hi friends, I hope you all are doing well.

I'd like to simulate a hydronic radiant cooling system. Through pipes, water goes inside a masonry/concrete wall and cools down the room temperature. We will use the warmed water for another purpose. What I am interested in is how the wall would perform in terms of energy performance/thermal response, how the air temperature would fluctuate when in contact with the wall, how long pipe I need, etc.

Do you think EnergyPlus can be used in order to simulate this type of system or similar ones? My experience with EnergyPlus is limited, so I would appreciate any help you can provide. Thank you very much for your assistance in advance.

Best, Mohammad
