Sensitivity Analysis of Influential Design Parameters for South Oriented Glazed Façade Office Ramkishore Singh*, Dharam Buddhi, Ashutosh Verma, Rajesh Singh, Shane Sheoran



Buildings are accountable around 30-40% of global energy consumption. The modern designs of building with significantly large size of glazed façade are trending and liked by the owner and designers. However, their energy and indoor visual performances are required to be investigated thoroughly. This study assessed the most significant design parameters for south glazed façade office in composite climate of Amritsar in India. The influential parameters have been identified through uncertainty and sensitivity analysis for energy and indoor visual performances. The WWR, ASR, Gt and ST have been identified major and common design parameters that influence the performance of buildings. However, their contributions vary with the performance parameters.
