THERMAL BEHAVIOR OF AIR-FILLED DOUBLE GLAZING
Palavras-chave:Double glazing, Fenestration, Thermal behavior, Heat transfer
The window is an opening in the wall that allows air and light into the room. This architectural element also serves to beautify, and for the user to enjoy beautiful landscapes, which exist in the vicinity of the building. But, the window is made up of elements that do not always provide the best thermal performance, thus leading to excessive electricity expenses, with the use of air conditioners. Although there are polymeric materials used in window design with regard to the transparent zone, glass is the one that is most evident from its recurring use in most buildings. Therefore, in this study, the variation and temperature differential along the glasses will be evaluated. This element, when badly chosen, can cause high solar gains, causing thermal discomfort and the early appearance of pathologies in the building.
