Cut Back of Non-technological Barriers to Double Skin Facades

This paper is part of the “Best Practice for Double Skin Facades” – ‘BESTFACADE’ project (supported by the Intelligent Energy Europe Programme of the European Community) and aims to describe the cut back of non-technological barriers to the application of

The validation of a model for the energy performances of double facades

Various types of double façades can be distinguished. In earlier work a simple simulation model for the energy performance of double facades is developed. In this paper the problem of modelling a half-open sunshade between sheets is discussed. An extensiv
