Abstract

The net gain between absorption during the day and losses during the night of a glass panel is a function of the transmission of the light and the K coefficient of heat loss. In order to reduce this K coefficient, several products are now sold on the market: Double glazing K = 3,2 W/M2 degrees C Triple glazing K = 2,4 W/M2 degrees C Reference single glass K = 5 W/M2 degrees C The purpose of this project is to develop a translucent panel which can both transmit solar radiation and be a permanent insulation, using tubes of Pyrex in which a relative vacuum has been created. The objective is to confirm that such a panel will have K coefficient between 0.6 and 1.3 W/M2 degrees C.
