thick glass sheets each with a low-e coating with an emittance
The inputs were the optical and emittance
values at normal incidence for the two panes of glass.
A comprehensive study conducted by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) and the Cool Metal Roofing Coalition on the aged reflectance values for painted metal roofing and other roofing materials showed that solar reflectance and thermal emittance
values of painted metal roofing degrade minimally over time.
w] is the emittance
of the water, [sigma] is Boltzmann's constant, [T.
These films and laminates are characterized by having at least one surface with an emittance
A solar collector having a copper tube on an aluminium sheet absorber with absorptance 94% [+ or -] 2% and emittance
5% [+ or -] 2% was used for this study (EnerWorks 2007).
Kraton Polymers tested the reflectance and emittance
of its G1643 elastomeric roof coating formulation using ASTM C1549 and ASTM C1371 standards.

4])and [alpha] is the surface area-averaged emittance

2] Average emittance
is the same both in mannequin and actual body conditions.
window glaze saves energy in both summer and winter, and state-of-the-art HVAC and plumbing equipment reduce the waste present in some old systems.
A "cool roof is achieved by maximizing the roofing materials reflectance in the visible spectrum and by maximizing its emittance
in the infrared spectrum.
