英文摘要: Abstract(#br)This paper introduces an original approach for the evaluation of the cooling load due to the solar radiation incident on the glazed surface of a building. This approach is based on a newly introduced parameter called Solar Response Factor , defined as the overall convective heat flux released by the building envelope to the indoor space per unit radiant heat flux acting on the outer surface of the glazing.(#br)The Solar Response Factor is a complex number, and can be calculated as a combination of the thermal and the optical properties of walls and glazing. In particular, the paper discusses how the Solar Response Factor depends on the optical properties of the envelope, on the size of the windows and on the type of walls delimiting the enclosed space.(#br)Furthermore, under...
