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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
