dc.description.abstractThis article introduces a numerical model to project and construct a Double Skin Facade (DSF) in windows facing south, in order to be used on thermal energy generation in winter conditions. The DSF system is applied to a virtual chamber similar to a real experimental chamber and it is connected to a mixing ventilation system. The thermal energy generated by this DSF system is used to further indoor air quality and thermal comfort for occupants. The numerical simulation is done by a software that simulates the virtual chamber and the DSF thermal response. This software uses energy and mass balance integral equations for the opaque surfaces, transparent surfaces and internal air. It also considers the solar radiation simulator, the glass radiative properties and the assessment of radiative and convective coefficients. The results show that the proposed DSF system, using solar radiation, contributes to having acceptable conditions of thermal comfort, during most of the occupation cycle, and indoor air quality.
