Review

for building envelope energy systems’ modeling

J.A. Palyvos *

Solar Engineering Unit, School of Chemical Engineering, National Technical University of Athens, Greece GR-15780

Available online 15 December 2007

Abstract

The thermal losses to the ambient from a building surface or a roof mounted solar collector represent an important portion of the

overall energy balance and depend heavily on the wind induced convection. In an eﬀort to help designers make better use of the available

correlations in the literature for the external convection coeﬃcients due to the wind, a critical discussion and a suitable tabulation is

presented, on the basis of algebraic form of the coeﬃcients and their dependence upon characteristic length and wind direction, in addi-

tion to wind speed. Finally, simple average correlations are produced from the existing ones, useful for quick, gross estimates.
