The PASLINK test facilities and analysis procedures aim to obtain the thermal and solar characteristics of building components under real dynamic outdoor conditions. Both the analysis and the test methodology have evolved since the start of the PASSYS Project in 1985. A programme of upgrading the original PASSYS test cells has improved measurement accuracy. The emphasis has moved from steady state to dynamic methods with shorter test durations yielding improved information and more accurate results.
The purpose of this work was to determine U and g coefficients of the external wall with transparent insulation under real external climatic conditions. As the mainly methodology used for obtainment of the intended results was adoption of the methodology based on Paslink test cells system. To obtain from the collected data the searched coefficients various method of analysis was used.
IQ-Test is a Thematic Network supported by the European Community under the EESD Programme.The objective of IQ-TEST is to further develop common quality procedures for the PASSYS/PASLINK test cell facilities that exist in 12 European countries. This should consolidate thenetwork, integrate the new test sites and strengthen its common approach of support for new product developments in the field of innovative building components.Round robin tests are underway to assess both the inter-site quality of testing and analytical procedures of the participants.
