BUILDINGS ENVELOPES AND THEIR ROLE IN SAVING ENERGY

HBRC, MAY 2024

1- Introduction:
The energy performance of buildings depends on several factors, one of the most important factors is the building envelope. The building envelope consists of opaque components (such as walls and concrete roofs) and transparent components (such as windows), both of which play a crucial role in heat transfer process from the outside to the interior space, resulting in increased air conditioning loads.
The main sources of energy consumption within a building include thermal control, natural and mechanical ventilation, natural and artificial lighting. These sources need to be integrated with each other to achieve energy efficiency within the building.
The increase in outdoor air temperature surrounding the building leads to an increase in the temperature of the building's exterior surfaces within the envelope. Building materials play a significant role in this process. Additionally, sunlight, whether direct or dispersed in the atmosphere or reflected from adjacent surfaces, falls on the building's outer envelope. A small portion of this radiation is reflected, while the majority is absorbed by the building's envelope, causing heat to flow into the building until its temperature exceeds that of the surrounding air. The location and orientation of each surface determine the amount and way it gains heat, whether walls or ceilings. Transparent parts also play a crucial role in the outer envelope by allowing direct sunlight to pass into the building. The determination of the thermal and optical properties of these transparent parts is essential for evaluation purposes.

2- Objective:
Going from the wider objective of minimizing energy consumption in construction sector and conjunction with the Egypt’s 2030 vision, we aim to optimize several factors that affect the energy transfer from outside to interior spaces of the buildings. Buildings envelope is the first barrier responsible for controlling heat transfer. To tackle this, several pillars will be introduced and discussed which are as follows:
- Minimum design requirements for buildings envelope in Egypt.
- General criteria for Evaluating buildings envelop materials in the Lab.
- Familiarize stakeholders about the importance of evaluating building envelopes using various laboratory equipment.
- On-site testing and evaluation of buildings envelope
- Unveiling On-site testing criteria and procedures.
- Recent directions and developments of construction industry in Egypt.

3- Topics:
• Code requirement for buildings envelope.
• Types of transparent parts and shading.
• Wall insulation and energy saving.
• Experimental laboratory and on-site testing.
• Theoretical calculations and numerical modeling.
