Some knowledge about windows.
Manufacturers, engineers, architects, researchers, sales personnel.
Interactive program: user-provided data files for frames (from the THERM program) and glazing layers (from the Optics program) optional.
Reports for the total window can be saved to disk or printed; files can be generated to be used as input to the DOE-2 and EnergyPlus programs; libraries of window components can be printed separately. A detailed printout of the glazing system is also available.
Easy to learn; consistent with ASHRAE and NFRC procedures; interfaces with the DOE-2 and EnergyPlus simulation programs.
