Paper Abstract

Optimal window glass assemblies have been developed for three use cases, when the average outside temperature is greater or less than the target indoor temperature. These assemblies have 2× better insulation than a standard double glazed window. They were developed by identifying insulation strategies for each of the 4 energy bands that transfer heat through windows. The insulation strategies were identified through analytical models for each energy band. The strategies were then applied to glasses in the DOE International Glass Data Base and evaluated using the industry standard modelling programs. These evaluations provided a systematic method to developed optimal glass assemblies.
