Convective Energy Flow through a Window
This Demonstration calculates the energy balance to determine the convective energy flow of air from a room at temperature to the outside environment at temperature . A glass window of width and height separates the inside and outside air. The air outside is blowing with velocity parallel to the glass.[more]
The energy flow is obtained as a function of wind velocity , window width , window height , inside temperature , outside temperature and the physical properties of the air. You can see the numerical values by hovering the mouse over the points in the plots.[less]
