algorithmic modeling for Rhino
Hello Forum, I am curious how to treat a glass balustrade/handrail as context for solar radiation analysis. Certainly the balustrade will filter the solar radiation but not block it completely... As such, how should I handle this architectural element in a solar radiation analysis using ladybug? Thanks in advance !

You have to use Honeybee (ladybug doesn't account for material properties).
Define the glass material according to the transmittance/reflection properties. You probably need to set a medium/high quality or manually set the -ab to a fair high value.
Probably Sarith or other gurus in Radiance can provide better recommendations.
Thanks for your reply Abraham!
I set the properties with honeybee, than feed that honeybee object into the context of the ladybug radiation Analysis?
