Abstract (Swedish)
A method was developed, which drives the selection of appropriate solar control mechanisms based on the
analysis of overheating due to solar heat gains. The aim of the method is to maintain adequate thermal
comfort levels in highly glazed spaces. Two thermal comfort models, Predicted Mean Vote and Adaptive
Model, were chosen to set the thermal comfort boundaries included in the method. Moreover, in order to
make the output of this method more realistic, the effect of direct solar component was considered as an
adjustment to the mean radiant temperature. The results of thermal comfort analysis are presented in annual
overheating charts colored after the scaled range of temperatures for every hour of the year. As a... (More)

overheating charts colored after the scaled range of temperatures for every hour of the year. As a result of
the analysis, the appropriate combination of solar control mechanisms is defined according to their
performance in solving particular overheating problem. By that the method suggests solutions and helps the
designer to understand the potential improvements that can be realized by implementing solar control
mechanisms. The method aims to assist specialists with the selection process of solar control mechanism
that respects the architectural vision without compromising the quality of thermal comfort. (Less)
