Chilled sails in EnergyPlus

I noticed this previous post on modeling radiant panels, but am wondering how people are modeling zone HVAC devices in EnergyPlus that provide radiant and convective heat transfer, such as chilled sails. The convective component may alter the responsiveness of the device to the load altering the peak load, so I'm not convinced that the ZoneHVAC:LowTemperatureRadiant objects are the appropriate choice.

If there is a passive chilled beam in EnergyPlus I would use that. The capacity is approximately the same, and it has a radiant and convective component. Although I'm guessing the radiant component in a sail is higher, and the convective component is lower.
