"If the substance introduced is not diathermanous for any color, e.g., a piece of carbon however small, there exists at the stationary state in the whole vacuum for all colors the intensity [K.sub.v] of black radiation corresponding to the temperature of the substance".
The major factor is the diathermanous effect of ultrasound.
The ASHRAE Window Attachment (ASHWAT) model was also proposed, offering a simplified approach to the way in which an energy balance is applied at each layer to calculate U-factors and SHGC for a fenestration system that can include one or more diathermanous layers (Collins et al.
In addition, a drapery layer will generally transmit longwave radiation (i.e., it is diathermanous) by virtue of its openness, and effective longwave properties are assigned accordingly.
He subsequently summarized "If we now make a hole in one of the walls of a size d[sigma], so small that the intensity of the radiation directed towards the hole is not changed thereby, then radiation passes through the hole to the exterior where we shall suppose there is the same diathermanous medium as within.

In addition, a shading layer will generally transmit longwave radiation (i.e., it is diathermanous), by virtue of its openness, and effective longwave properties are assigned accordingly.
While many followed de la Provostaye's initial objection, refutations always seemed to be based on arguments such as perfectly reflecting mirrors do not exist, neither do perfectly diathermanous (or transparent) bodies, or bodies which can only absorb one wavelength.
Recent research showed, however, that these simple models were not accurate for slat-type blinds (Yahoda and Wright, 2004a), and for diathermanous - infrared transparent- layers (Collins and Wright, 2006).
In addition, a shading layer will generally transmit longwave radiation (i.e., it is diathermanous) by virtue of its openness, and effective longwave properties are assigned accordingly.
These algorithms are noteworthy because they allow for the possibility of layers that transmit longwave radiation (i.e., diathermanous layers).
