Building Material Assigning in Building wall materials

      Hi, all.


      I have a simple box type building geometry.

      I just model it with a simple surfaces.

      And I wanted to apply mutiple wall materails on it with given informations.

      Such as


          B5 - 1 IN DENSE INSULATION,  !- Name

          VeryRough,               !- Roughness

          2.5389841E-02,           !- Thickness {m}

          4.3239430E-02,           !- Conductivity {W/m-K}

          91.30524,                !- Density {kg/m3}

          836.8000,                !- Specific Heat {J/kg-K}

          0.9000000,               !- Thermal Absorptance

          0.5000000,               !- Solar Absorptance

          0.5000000;               !- Visible Absorptance



          C12 - 2 IN HW CONCRETE,  !- Name

          MediumRough,             !- Roughness

          5.0901599E-02,           !- Thickness {m}

          1.729577,                !- Conductivity {W/m-K}

          2242.585,                !- Density {kg/m3}

          836.8000,                !- Specific Heat {J/kg-K}

          0.9000000,               !- Thermal Absorptance

          0.6500000,               !- Solar Absorptance

          0.6500000;               !- Visible Absorptance


      But I just wondered what is the best way to apply this information to this surface.

      Should I suppose to model this in details?

      If so, how?

      Please guide me if you can.

      You can use shell conduction and give multiple thicknesses and material properties but can not be defined all the properties.
