24 September 1986 Transparent Insulation Materials (Thermal Conductivity)
Author Affiliations +
Different kinds of transparent insulation materials were investigated. The thermal conductivity was found to depend mainly on thermal radiation. For this reason it was found to be generally sufficient to classify the materials by only one radiative property. The improvement of thermal insulation by application of a selective absorber was investigated by measurements and calculations. A new configuration to combine a selective absorber with a transparent insulation is proposed. Some spectral measurements were done and compared with calculations. Radiative grey characterization was compared with spectral characterization.
