Does E consider interior shading when calculating radiant temperature?

Hi all,

I'm just re-opening this 5 year old topic again, regarding the calculation of Radiant temperatures considering shading devices.

I'm just wondering whether there was any update on this. Back then E+ was not capable of considering any shading object on the mean radiant calculations (ie. as I understood, interior curtains have no effect on the radiant temperature experienced by occupants, although they do affect the air temperature correctly).

Best, Rafael


As per this Github issue, the problem remains unsolved. Would be great if the E+ dev team addresses it sooner than later, although it doesn't seem an easy one. Please consider upvoting the issue on Github if you find this useful :)

Interesting exchange you had with @MJWitte 5 years ago. From this open issue, it seems unresolved. EDIT: Rafael, I appreciate the challenge you're facing. I added a suggestion in the original post - it's what I'd try (and compare/contrast vs other similar options).

Hi Denis, thanks for the note. I see it is unfortunately still open. Hopefully it gets some priority if enough people find it useful.
