Static sunshade for thermal comfort inside buildings

Design and development of static sunshade for thermal comfort inside the buildings

The research work aims on the following objectives:- To check the optimum entry of sunlight through openings in different facades within the building for comfort conditioning; design and development of static sunshade; modeling and analysis of the thermal performance of the buildings with the help of software TRANSYS; and the Practical applicability of the obtained sunshade.  For the experimental investigation, Ferro-cement will be used for the fabrication of new sunshade. The comparative model analysis will be done for all the cases i.e. without sunshades, with the existing sunshades and the proposed one. The total building performance i.e. the temperature and air velocity measurements will be carried out for all the cases. Finally cost analysis will be done and a feasible design would be recommended with design aids and developed software.
