title A Design Tool for Determining the Form of Fixed and Movable Sunshades
source ASHRAE Transactions. 1984. vol. 90: [14] p. : ill. and tables. includes bibliography: p. [7]
summary A method for the design of fixed and movable external sunshaeds for windows is presented. The window can have any shape and be located on a wall having an arbitrary orientation. The fundamental idea is to use a computer to generate the entire envelope of the family of shading solutions that satisfies a prescribed set of shading requirements. The envelope of solutions serves as a nomogram on the basis of which sunshades are designed. Any sunshade designed following this nomogram satisfies the prescribed demands. The method creates an unlimited space of solutions, leaving the final design to the architect's imagination
