Solar Absorption by Each Element in a Glazing/Shading Layer Array
(American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers, 2006)
Window solar gain can strongly influence building energy consumption and peak cooling load. Shading devices such as venetian blinds, roller blinds, and drapes are routinely used to control solar gain. There is a strong ...
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 ...
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 ...
