Automotive Insulating Glass - Improvements in Comfort 910546
Calculations of U-values, glass surface temperatures and condensation behavior, radiation exchange, and shading coefficients of automotive single and double glazings have been carried out at various car velocities. These criteria are considered to have a significant influence on passenger comfort and safe driving. The advantages of various types of double glazings compared to single glazings are pointed out in detail. This paper shows an improvement on all criteria for double glazing with solar control and low-E coating compared to tinted single glazing at both low and high car velocities.
