I am currently assessing the performance of double skin facades comparing them with standard single skin facades. The aim is to see what is the energy consumption (cooling loads etc.) with different options.
I wanted to ask to the community here what is the most appropriate approach to model double skin facades in HB, how to account for the actual properties of blinds located in the cavity etc.
Is the best option we have to follow the approach in the example below?
How can we apply specific material properties (for example, LT, g-value) using the Energy Plus Window Shade generator?
Could the double skin be modeled as BSDF material imported from Window? How could we in this case make the double skin dynamic (e.g. blinds up and blinds down)?
I will probably have further and specific questions as I go on but I wanted to check first what is the suggested approach to model this kind of facade.
Thank you in advance for your help,
