Model for the convective heat balance
of a shade that is in the outside or the room-side of a window.
The convective heat balance is based on the model described by Wright (2008), which can
be shown as a convective heat resistance model as follows:
Wright (2008) reports that if the shading layer is far enough from the window,
the boundary layers associated with each surface will not interfere with
each other. In this case, it is reasonable to consider each surface on an
individual basis by setting the convective heat transfer coefficient shown in grey to zero,
and setting the black depicted convective heat transfer coefficients
to h=4 W/m2 K.
In the here implemented model, the grey depicted convective heat transfer coefficient
is set set to h' = k h, where 0 ≤ k ≤ 1 is a parameter.

Changed model because the outflowing radiosity has been changed to be a non-negative quantity.
