Advanced Fenestration Technology

Chair: Urs Buehlmann, Bern University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland

Discomfort glare with complex fenestration systems and the impact on energy use when using daylighting control
  • Modeling complex fenestration systems with radiance and
  • EnergyPlus Occurrence of discomfort glare with exterior shades
  • Impact on energy use intensity when using daylighting control with exterior shades

Sabine Hoffmann, Chair of Facilities Management and Facilities Engineering, University of Kaiserslautern, Germany

Structural sealant glazing: reinventing the wooden window
  • Wooden windows are quite expensive
  • PVC windows are thus gaining market share
  • Novel ways to construct and manufacture wooden windows

Marc Donzé, Research and Development, Architecture, Wood, and Civil Engineering, Bern University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland

Thermal properties of door and window access systems
  • Modern doors and windows in building skins
  • Electronics for opening/locking of windows
  • Thermally efficient locks

Wolfgang Rädle, Research and Development, Architecture, Wood, and Civil Engineering, Bern University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland

New material for an ecological solution for wooden window frame enlargements
  • Windows are exposed to water during building construction
  • Wood-based window frame enlargements swell due to humidity
  • An ecologically sound solution based on a non-hygroscopic material

Urs Uehlinger, Research and Development, Architecture, Wood, and Civil Engineering, Bern University of Applied Sciences, Switzerland
