Alaska is on a distinguished road
Dear all,

I am having problems calculating overall heat transfer coefficient, U-value, of fenestration products, window. I have ran for 2D Fluent stimulation and finally got the surface temperatures of both side of the glass. The thermal conductivity of glass is known and the free air stream temperature for both side of glass is known as well. From that information, I have no idea how to get the U-value of that glass.

With regards,
