AbstractWindows are used in the enclosure of buildings to permit entry of natural light, a view of the outdoors, and ventilation. In addition, windows must perform the same function of separating interior and exterior environments as the remainder of the enclosure. Functions related to transparency may be in conflict with those relating to other desired attributes of the building space; this creates the need for considering cost versus benefit on a system basis in establishing performance criteria. This paper deals with the current status of evaluation of windows as environmental separators.
