Information

Hypothesis and equations

Function computing solar fractions (SF) following the methodology described in appendix of the BESTEST procedure.

The computation is based on walls and windows short-wave absorptance and transmittance, on surface areas and form factors between each wall and the floor, on which the first reflection is considered. The approach is as follows:

  1. Radiation transmitted by the glazing reaches the floor on which a share is absorbed
  2. The other share is reflected and considered as diffuse. It is distributed on other surfaces proportionally to the term : absorptance x FF with the floor
  3. The remaining non-absorbed radiation is then distributed on all surfaces proportionally to the term : absorptance x surface areas
  4. The rest is distributed in proportion to what has been distributed at the previous step.

Note: This model takes into account what is lost through the windows and sent out of the zone./p>
