  • Solar Gain through Windows with Shading Devices: Simulation Versus Measurement 

    Wright, John L.; Kotey, Nathan Amon; Barnaby, Charles S.; Collins, Michael R. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2009)
    Shading devices offer a cost saving strategy in dynamically controlling solar gain through windows. As such, there is an ongoing effort to accurately quantify the thermal performance of shading devices. In the present ...
  • Determining Off-Normal Solar Optical Properties of Drapery Fabrics 

    Kotey, Nathan Amon; Collins, Michael R.; Wright, John L. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2009)
    The determination of off-normal solar optical properties of drapery fabrics is particularly useful in modelling the effective solar optical properties of pleated drapery. Special sample holders were designed and fabricated ...
  • A Detailed Model to Determine the Effective Solar Optical Properties of Draperies 

    Kotey, Nathan Amon; Wright, John L.; Collins, Michael R. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2009)
    Drapes have the potential to reduce peak cooling load and annual energy consumption because they can be used to control solar gain. Thus, the need to model a drapes in a glazing system analysis is important. A detailed ...
  • Methods for Calculating the Effective Solar-Optical Properties of a Venetian Blind Layer 

    Yahoda, Darryl S.; Wright, John L. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2005)
    Window solar gain can strongly influence building energy consumption, peak loads, and comfort. Shading devices are routinely used to control solar gain. The use of venetian blinds is particularly common. There is a strong ...
  • Heat Transfer Analysis of a Between-Panes Venetian Blind Using Effective Longwave Radiative Properties 

    Wright, John L.; Yahoda, Darryl S. (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2004)
    Center-glass thermal analysis programs based on one-dimensional models have proved to be exceptionally useful. Recently efforts have been made to extend the analysis to include venetian blinds. It is convenient to model ...
