abstract

  • This paper explores a series of experiments that were conducted in order to determine a viable option for the glazing system in a low cost, high performance housing design for Tijuana, Mexico. Using identical test cells, the performance of different glazing types were evaluated and compared. A series of three different experiments took place. The parameters of each experiment were determined using the results from the previous experiment. Interior temperature was the main parameter used to evaluate the results, as well as cost and feasibility of the material in Mexico.
