Air spaces and windows


подпись: glazingAir spaces Air conduction resistance R = 8/?i

Where R = air conduction resistance 8 = air layer thickness X = thermal conductivity ( 0.023 W/m K for air)

“Ideal case” for 0.02 m thick of air layer

R = 8fk = 0.02/0.023 = 0.87 m2 K/W

Because of convection and radiation effect, the actual R is between 0.1 to 0.7 m K/W.
