CIBSE loads and double facade

Postby Dimitri » Tue Aug 23, 2016 9:08 am


I am doing a loads simulation for a building that has a double skin - basically two glazed curtain walls with 2.5 meter cavity in between. My question is - will CIBSE loads calculation correctly account for the solar gains through both sheets of glass? Should I keep the cavity as a separate zone or connect it to the main space for more accurate results?
