The Applicability of Glazing System With Dynamic Insulation for Residential Buildings
Published May 23, 2012 by Society of Automotive Engineers of Japan in Japan
The aim of this paper is to evaluate the thermal insulation efficiency and probability of moisture condensation in the proposed glazing system in buildings in order to confirm its feasibility and applicability. First, a double pane airflow window system was designed to ventilate through the window frame and the air space of a double pane window. Then, to verify its thermal insulation efficiency, the temperature distribution of the window system was evaluated using computer fluid dynamics with different coupled conditions, such as the indoor/outdoor pressure difference and outdoor temperature, after confirming calculation accuracy using glazing model. In addition, to verify the probability of moisture condensation, the relative humidity in the window system was calculated based on the various conditions
