[EnergyPlus_Support] Optical properties of glazing
Looking the Engineering Document, I have a question: for EnergyPlus, what is
the difference between Reflectance and Reflectivity? Or Transmittance and
Studying the manual, I concluded that the difference is that reflectivity is
the term used to account the angular dependence, while reflectance is used to
express normal incidence.
Searching on the net, i found the following definitions:
- Transmittance is the ratio of the total radiant or luminous flux transmitted
by a transparent object to the incident flux, usually given for normal
- Transmissivity is the ratio of the directly transmitted light after passing
through one unit of a participating medium (atmosphere, dust, fog) to the
amount of light that would have passed the same distance through a vacuum. It
is the amount of light that remains after the absorption coefficient and the
scattering coefficient (together the extinction coefficient) are accounted for.
- Reflectance is the ratio of incident luminous flux upon a surface which is
reradiated in the visual spectrum.
Can I use this definitions for EnergyPlus?
