In recent times, there has been a demand for developing new technologies for glazing with superior thermal performance, good optical quality and of the lowest possible weight. In the paper, CFD modeling and analytical calculation of the thermal performance of multi-layer glazing with ultrathin internal glass partitions is presented.
