Thermal Performances of Windows
Application ID: 16077
During the design of a building, environmental issues have gained considerable influence in the entire project. One of the first concerns is to improve thermal performances. In this process, simulation software are key tools to model thermal losses and performances in the building.
The international standard ISO 10077-2:2012 deals with thermal performance of windows, doors and shutters. It provides calculated values of the thermal characteristics of frame profiles in order to validate a simulation software.
COMSOL Multiphysics successfully passes the entire benchmark. This document describes six frame profiles of ISO 10077-2:2012 related to windows only. Other test cases from this norm are available in the following models:
- Thermal Performances of Roller Shutters; Model ID: 16073
- Glazing Influence on Thermal Performances of a Window; Model ID: 16075
This model example illustrates applications of this type that would nominally be built using the following products:
however, additional products may be required to completely define and model it. Furthermore, this example may also be defined and modeled using components from the following product combinations:
- COMSOL Multiphysics® and
- CFD Module, Chemical Reaction Engineering Module, Corrosion Module, Electrochemistry Module, Electrodeposition Module, Heat Transfer Module, Microfluidics Module, Plasma Module, Porous Media Flow Module, or Subsurface Flow Module
The combination of COMSOL® products required to model your application depends on several factors and may include boundary conditions, material properties, physics interfaces, and part libraries. Particular functionality may be common to several products. To determine the right combination of products for your modeling needs, review the Specification Chart and make use of a free evaluation license. The COMSOL Sales and Support teams are available for answering any questions you may have regarding this.
