The paper describes a modelling study of heat transfer and buoyancy-driven airflow in double skin facades consisting of a glass outer layer, a control device (venetian blind) and a double-glazed inner skin. The modelling study was based on two approaches — a component-based, lumped parameter simulation which used a public domain, open source differential/algebraic equation solver and a detailed, CFD calculation which included air flow, conduction, convection and radiation. The primary objective of the work was to compare the performance of the simplified model with the output of a rigorous CFD calculation.
