How can we improve EnergyPlus?

ASTM C1340 convection algorithm for attic spaces

The calculation of convection coefficients on the surfaces for spaces representing attics in EnergyPlus has been shown to have inaccuracies when compared to empirical data and building models that specialize in attics. The ASTM C1340 standard has a set of correlations for these convection coefficients that has been empirically validated. An EMS approach to implementing these convection coefficients is available, but it would be much more usable to have it incorporated as a new object in EnergyPlus.
