Know the future of sustainable cities | Solar Structural Engineering
Solar structural engineering is the incorporation of active, passive or solar panel technology with advanced building procedures. The utilization of adaptable thin-film photovoltaic modules furnishes liquid integration with steel roofing profiles, upgrading the building’s outline.
Making a building conversant to the sun, deciding on materials with good thermal mass or light scattering properties, and outlining spaces that naturally flow air altogether make up solar based structural planning.
Preliminary advancement of sun oriented building design has been restricted by the inflexibility and weight of standard solar power panels. The sustained expansion of photovoltaic (PV) flimsy film solar has given a lightweight however hearty vehicle to harness sun powered energy to diminish a building’s effect on nature. The concept of a dynamic solar architecture revolves around the the moving of heat and/or coolness flanked by a provisional heat storage intermediate and a building, usually in response to a thermostat’s call for heating up or cooling inside the building.
In such solar building structures, all the windows, walls, and floors are designed to accumulate, store, and dispense solar power in the form of heat during winters and eliminate solar heat in the summers. This technology switches sunlight into utilizable heat, commonly in water, air, and thermal mass, source air-movement for proper circulation, or potential use, with slight use of added energy sources.
When the aforementioned features are customized to the local climate and surroundings they can fabricate well-lit spaces that remain in a relaxed temperature range.
