I am currently doing some study comparing 2 different glass materials;
- Laminated glass (U = 3.90 W/sqmK, VLT = 0.65, SC = 0.61)
- Double glazed unit (U = 1.57 W/sqmK, VLT = 0.57, SC = 0.37)
The radiation is evaluated behind the glass and I am getting similar results for both types of glass. I am hoping that someone can help me figure out if the result is correct or I have set it up wrongly.
Thank you in advance. Attachments are the screenshot of the material setting, results, and GH file used.
