Description

This paper reports measured heat transfer coefficient of a double skin façade (DSF) window measured 1.1 m by 0.7 m at varied depth in the absence of solar radiation using a calorimeter box. The results showed that the DSF had better insulation than the double glazing especially with cavity closed. All the studied factors (ventilation, cavity width, and outdoor temperature) had influence on the heat transfer coefficient and such influence could be season specific. Measurements confirmed the existence of an optimal width in winter for best insulation.
