Journal of Facade Design and Engineering Vol. 9 No. 2 (2021) Out!
This is the next regular issue of the JFDE – it includes papers on the effects of plants growing over double façades, mitigation of seismic risks, blast resilience and a comparative analysis of semi-permanent paper based envelopes.
Assessment on the efficiency of an Active Solar Thermal Facade: Study of the effect of dynamic parameters and experimental analysis when coupled/uncoupled to a heat pump
The building sector presents poor performance in terms of energy efficiency and is looking for effective alternatives aimed at reducing the use of fossil fuels.
Benchmarking clear sky and transposition models for solar irradiance estimation on vertical planes to facilitate glazed facade design
The present study aims to benchmark the models utilized for estimating the solar irradiance on vertical planes that can facilitate the determination of critical conditions.
