Heat Transfer Analysis Of Windows With Venetian Blinds: A Comparative Study
The potential to reduce building load and annual energy consumption is widely recognized in the use of shading devices to control solar gain. Consequently, the ability to include and model shading layers in complex glazing ...
Mitigation of Peak Cooling Demand through the Combination of Residential Zoned Cooling and Window Shading: A Building Simulation Case Study
(International Building Performance Simulation Association, 2014-05)
The present study expands on previous building simulation work con-cerning the potential benefits of residential zoned cooling systems during peak summer days. Such zoned systems provide an opportunity for peak reduction ...
Demonstration Of New ESP-R Capability For Quantifying The Energy Savings Potential Of Window Shading Devices
Buildings with highly glazed facades and well insulated, air-tight envelopes result in interior spaces that are highly sensitive to solar gain. Solar gain through glazing is the largest and most variable gain in buildings ...
Modeling Fenestration With Shading Devices In Building Energy Simulation: A Practical Approach
(International Building Performance Simulation Association, 2009-07)
The use of operable shading devices impacts building loads significantly. The need exists for an explicit treatment of window shading devices in the design of energy efficient buildings through simulation. A general framework ...
