What is the history of transparent insulation?
How can I increase the visible transmission of transparent insulation?
- Transparent insulation materials appear most transparent when viewed front on and tend to be opaque when viewed at an angle. In order to increase the visible transmission of TIM glazing, it is important to increase capillary size, reduce the thickness, or view the transparent insulation material from a distance ( Lien et al. 1997).
What are the properties of transparent insulators?
- They transmit heat, mainly through conduction and radiation, but convection is usually suppressed (Kaushika and Sumathy 2003). The thermal and optical properties of transparent insulation materials depend on the material, its structure, thickness, quality and uniformity.
What happens to solar energy when it passes through transparent insulation?
- Therefore short wave solar radiation passes through the Transparent Insulation and longwave heat radiation is insulated by the transparent insulation. Incident solar energy falling on the transparent insulation is reflected and re-reflected within the material and eventually falls on the absorber.
