[TRNSYS-users] variable wall layer conductivity in type56

   You would need to write your own component in order to model that 
sort of a wall. You could then use the BOUNDARY wall concept in Type56 
to make an interface layer between the rest of the building and your 
wall model. In order to write a new model for TRNSYS, you need to have a 
compiler capable of making a 32-bit DLL. The rest of TRNSYS is developed 
using the Intel Visual Fortran compiler and it is highly recommended 
that you use this compiler if at all possible.
Kind regards,
