Solar control mechanisms for enhanced thermal comfort and daylight control of a fully glazed space

Poirazis, Harris LU ; O´Donnell, Amanda; Stefanowicz, Magdalena and Davidsson, Henrik LU (2016)
Abstract (Swedish)
This paper deals with the need of developing a method that can assist designers to select appropriate solar
control mechanisms in highly glazed spaces, in order to provide enhanced daylight and views while avoiding
overheating. The development of the method is based on real life needs and was initiated by an actual project
that we, as building physicists / façade consultants were called in to assist. The paper is divided in three parts:
(a) brief description of the case study – introduction to the project, (b) description of the method developed to
inform façade design and (c) further development of the method. The work described is a combination of
project work and academic development carried out in Lund... (More)

project work and academic development carried out in Lund University. The aim of this effort was to develop
advanced methods and bring them to the “doorstep of design” by introducing a solar control selection process
for maximizing the benefits of glass (daylight and views) while avoiding overheating. (Less)
