Review on Thermal Models for Double-Skin Ventilated Building Envelopes

XU Xin-hua(Department of Building Environment and Services Engineering,Huazhong University of Science and Technology,Wuhan 430074,China)  
Curtains and windows with large glass are utilized widely in contemporary buildings.These curtains or windows are designed as double-skin with airflow passing through,to reduce solar radiation in summer and heat loss in winter.The structures are called doubleskin ventilated building envelope due to it acting as envelope.The development of thermal models for these structures which may be categorized as CFD model,lumped model,thermal and airflow network model,control volume model,zonal model etc,based on modeling approach. Their characteristics and applications are expounded in details.The later four models can be integrated with conventional building energy software for energy performance analysis or control analysis of the room or the whole building which utilized this double-skin ventilated building envelope.
