Solar Gain through Windows with Shading Devices: Simulation Versus Measurement
(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 ...
Improving Load Calculations for Fenestration with Shading Devices
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2009-10)
Activities and findings arising from ASHRAE Research Project 1311-RP are summarized. This project included three main goals, (a) development of models for pleated drapes, venetian blinds, roller blinds and insect screens, ...
Numerical Analysis of Convective Heat Transfer in Fenestration with Between-the-Glass Louvered Shades
A two-dimensional steady laminar natural convection model of a window cavity with between-panes louvers (i.e., slats) was developed by approximating the system as a vertical cavity with isothermal walls at different ...
Calculating Center-Glass Performance Indices of Windows with a Diathermanous Layer
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2006)
The fenestration chapter of the 2005 ASHRAE Hand-book—Fundamentals (ASHRAE 2005) has long included methods for determining the U-factor and solar heat gain coef-ficient (SHGC), or window performance indices, using the ...
