AbstractA simple method was devised for calculating the pressure differences that occur on sealed double glazing units due to the combined effect of changes in temperature and barometric pressure, and wind loads. The behaviour has been shown to depend on a simple factor related to the size and shape of the unit, the glass thickness, and the thickness of the air space.
