Abstract
In attempting to reduce the heat losses from buildings and other structures greater attention should be paid to radiation losses. These are less well understood and less easily controlled than conduction and convection losses. The sources of radiation range from the sun (6000K) to room temperature objects (293K) and the range of wavelengths being radiated is very large. Materials which are transparent at some wavelengths can be opaque or highly reflecting at others. Use can be made of such wavelength selective properties and new selectively reflecting materials are being developed. The requirement for windows for example are very different than for walls or for industrial insulation. Assessment of the properties of these materials requires new techniques both in the laboratory and in the field.
