Method of assessing the reduction of solar heat on window surface shaded by continuous vertically slanted shading devices
The research discusses calibration of the method used to calculate solar heat transfer through shaded windows with continuous vertical slanted shading devices (below is abbreviated as "vertical slanted fins") with any slant angle Θ through a radiation reduction coefficient - Kbt. In order to evaluate the reduction of solar heat on window surface shaded by shading devices, a designated coefficient β of solar heat gain reduction through glazed windows should be established. It is the ratio of the transmitted amount of solar heat (including direct and diffuse radiation) through windows with shading device QK to those without solar shading device QKo. The study also introduces two in-house software programs. These programs help calculating solar heat gain and coefficient β for vertically slanted fins with any slant angle θ for 16 window orientations. The results of this study will be applied to the implementation of the Vietnamese national code QCVN 09:2017/BXD towards energy efficiency in buildings.
