Glazing with Low-Emissivity Layers and its Performance Simulation
The contribution deals with the importance of low-emissivity glazing layers in improving the energy balance of building interiors. It describes the effects of changes in surface emissivity of glass, depending on the position of low-emissivity layer. It also discusses principles, advantages and disadvantages of the most common glazing combinations with regard to interior visual and thermal comfort and also slightly misleading interpretations caused by complexity of the matter. The discussion (and comparison) is based on methods and tools used in computer-aided building performance modelling and simulation and on recent information from glass industry.
