AbstractThis paper reports the results of measurements of inside surface temperatures on a basic double window arrangement consisting of two sheets of glass surrounded by insulated construction. Principal variables were air space width and height and overall temperature difference. Carefully controlled natural convection conditions were provided on the warm side, with forced convection on the cold side. The surface temperatures are related to temperatures measured in the air space and to the surface heat transfer conditions. In addition, results are given of the average surface-to-surface thermal conductance of each configuration.
