Impact of Overhangs

1 post / 0 new


Does anyone have good research data using simulations on the impact of
overhangs and shadings for a typical building?

I am having hard time convincing architects to reduce the glazing. They
will make it a glass building if they are given a chance.

I want to show them that for a 2 or 3 storied building with ton of
glazing and few feet of overhang will not help the cooling/heating loads
at all.

I would appreciate your input.

Thanks much.
