The objective of this European project is to investigate and develop highly insulating windows based on glazing with partly evacuated monolithic silica aerogel. The project involves three different main topics: 1) Material development (aerogel) and process optimization, 2) characterization of the aerogel material and the aerogel glazing and 3) application, i.e. glazing assembly and thermal optimization of total glazing solution. BYG·DTU is coordinating the project and is further responsible for the application part of the project. Main results are investigation of heat treatment of aerogels for improved optical quality and design and making of two test boxes for experimental investigation of outside condensation on highly insulating windows. Results have been presented at 7th International Symposium on Aerogels.
