Comparison of detailed and simplified window frame modelling in terms of influence on surface temperature

Marek Zozulák


Window frame profile modeling methodology is varied. Simplified and detailed models were considered and results from transient calculation of surface temperature were compared. As is shown, the detailed window frame profile modelling has the influence and whether it is useful or not depends on purpose of modelling.
