how to simulate the transmissivity/absorptivity for a glass layer NOT exposed to solar radiation?

      I am trying to model a double glazing, the outside glazing is exposed to solar radiation, the inside glazing is exposed to indoor environment. Air is in between. I modelled the double glazing in 3D as the following picture. The outside and inside glazing are both modelled as thin wall. The edges are adiabatic.

      Make it a thick surface (give the thin wall a thickness in Fluent) and turn on shell conduction (check documentation for why). I would also model some of the room air as I think you need to consider that to let you use a semi-transparent wall.
