This webinar, in collaboration with Smartlouvre Technology Ltd. will explore how we simulated the complex performance of the unique MicroLouvre product for a low energy building design. MicroLouvre is a woven fabric /mesh of paper-thin bronze louvres used to enhance the performance of any glazing or building facade.
MicroLouvre is commonly attached to external windows and acts as a natural ventilation-enabling and solar shading device whilst allowing sufficient daylighting into a space. Experimental data on the airflow, solar, thermal, and structural properties of MicroLouvre was used to simulate the overall performance of this device at the building level. We also show how SimScale was used to evaluate the discharge coefficient, which is a common property needed in building simulation studies.
