Thermal, Energy And Daylight Analysis Of Different Types Of Double Skin Façades In Various Climates, Ajla Aksamija

Ajla Aksamija

This article explores the thermal, energy, and daylighting performance of double skin façades (DSFs) in different climate types, specifically focusing on three typologies: box window, corridor, and multi-storey DSFs.  These systems were investigated and analysed to determine how different DSFs perform in comparison to each other, as well as a typical curtain wall (single skin glazed façade used as a baseline), in a multitude of climate applications. The utilised research methods included two-dimensional heat transfer analysis (Finite Element Method analysis), Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis, energy modelling, and daylight simulations. Heat transfer analysis was used to determine heat transfer coefficients ...
