Comparison of basic thermal insulation properties of triple glazing and quadruple glazing. It also compares the heat transfer coefficient of glazing, transmittance of solar radiation, the weight of glass and other basic properties of glazing. It deals with the effect of number and position of low-emission coating the quadruple glazing on the heat transfer coefficient. Reducing weight of quadruple glazing using thin heat-strengthened glass and dimensional constraints. 
Investigations of 6-pane glazing: Properties and possibilities
Abstract Today there is increasing interest and demand for energy savings in the building sector. Windows still represent a weak point in the building envelope with respect to thermal performance dueExpand
Life cycle cost analysis on three high-performance glazing systems for an office building in New Cairo, Egypt
ABSTRACT In the hot desert climate zones, the energy consumption of fully glazed office buildings is too high due to the heavy cooling loads. This problem forced architects to use theExpand
Theoretical background of ideal glazing based on adaptive thermal-optical parameters
Abstract The theoretical overview serves as a basis for the design of a separate adaptive glass system. An overview of current directions is processed, which reflects the actual user requirements inExpand
