The Second Skin Facades can be an useful tool for increasing the efficient use of natural ventilation in order to decrease the energy consumption for ventilation and cooling purposes and to increase the indoor thermal comfort levels. To analyze this type of facades a simulation is set up. The simulation is carried out with the simulation code Simulink.
