Effective U-values and Shading Coefficients of Preheat/Supply Air Glazing Systems
Research is documented which makes use of a computer program called VISION, This computer program was developed specifically to provide a detailed analysis of heat transfer occurring in glazing systems. VISION was modified ...
Simulation And Measurement Of Windows With Metal Films Used In Conjunction With Teflon Inner Glazings
Previous work has shown that highly infrared transparent plastic films are well suited for use as inner glazings when used in conjunction with a low emissivity coating. Thermal resistance measurements of a set of glazing ...
A Study Of Pane Spacing In Glazing Systems
(Solar Energy Society of Canada, 1989-06)
The selection of optimum pane spacing for glazing systems has been a topic of ongoing debate in the window manufacturing industry. Arguments are often based on speculation, intuition and results from tests not specifically ...
Thermal Resistance Measurement Of Glazing System Edge-seals
The existing design of glazing system edge-seals creates increased edge-glass heat transfer at the perimeter of sealed glazing units. This thermal short-circuit caused by edge-seal conduction results in added mechanical ...
Glazing System U-Value Measurement Using a Guarded Heater Plate Apparatus
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 1988)
Precise heat transfer measurements have been carried out during the last 20 years using a guarded heater plate apparatus. This apparatus has been adapted and used over the last several years to perform U-value measurements ...
Natural Convection in Sealed Glazing Units: A Review
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 1989)
In cold climates the augmented edge-glass heat transfer at the bottom of a glazing system creates a special problem. This is where condensed water and/or frost most readily occur. Two mechanisms determining the rate of ...
