SHGC calculations

Postby fichtner » Fri Aug 31, 2012 11:13 am

Hello Ladies and Gentleman,

I´m working on my Bachelorthesis and it deals with the SHGC.

My question is:

Is it possible to calculate the SHGC of different types of Glazing combined with window blinds considering the effect of an air ventilation with the DesignBuilder?

Thank you for every Answer!

Hello Artur,

DesignBuilder cannot carry out the calculation you mention, though EnergyPlus does combine blinds with simiple glazing systems at run time.

Hi,
my name is Kamila Mendonça and I intend to use DesignBuilder in my PhD research.

About the question above:

although it is not possible to calculate the SHGC considering the effect of an air ventilation, it is possible to calculate the SHGC WITHOUT considering this ventilation?

Thanks in advance.
