AbstractTables have been prepared for the transmission and absorption of radiant energy by various types of windows. The tables cover the following range of the independent variables: Incident angle = 0(10), 40(5), 70(2) 88 degrees; KL = 0.05 to 2.00 with increasing increments; Index of refraction = 1.52 and 1.62; Single and double glazed windows. For a single sheet of glass the parallel and perpendicular polarized beams are tabulated separately, as are the combined values for a non-polarized incident beam.
