[TAI技術ブログ]Utilize Glass Modeling for Faster Passenger Time-To-Comfort

  • 2020.5.29

Modern trends in designs are focused on glass. The abundance of natural light and the contemporary feel makes glass a popular choice in everything from automobiles to office spaces. While the style is appealing, managing the excess heat that is created by solar loading is critical. For automotive designers, comfortable cabins and lesser time-to-comfort is a vital factor in the satisfaction of their customers.
Customers purchase on aesthetic and functionality, which is why comfort is a crucial design metric for glass-heavy designs. The challenge for engineers is lessening a passenger’s time-to-comfort while retaining a beautiful design and creating optimal energy efficiency.
Energy efficiency plays a large part in the success of vehicle design for both electric vehicles (EV) and combustion engines. Vehicle range, whether by battery or a combustion engine, is determined by many factors, including how taxed the HVAC system is. Using a thermal simulation software, you can model comparisons of glass variants to see which glass type meets the comfort and efficiency requirements.
