This report is an outcome of the empirical validation of building simulation software tools conducted within the Subtask E: Modelling of a Double Skin Façade of International Energy Agency (IEA), Annex 34, Task 43 by the Experts Group composed of experts from the Solar Heating and Cooling (SHC) Programme. The main objective of the Subtask E is for buildings with Double Skin Façade (DSF), to perform empirical validation and, in this way, to assess suitability and awareness of building energy analysis tools for predicting energy use, heat transfer, ventilation flow rates, solar protection effect and cavity air temperatures of double-skin façade.
