Predicting Time to Fogging of Insulated Glass Units
Estimating the remaining service life span, or time-to-fogging, of insulating glass units (IGU's) can pose a planning and budgeting problem for building managers and condominium corporations. This document describes a method for predicting the time-to-failure of IGU's, and suggests ways of improving the predictability of IGU failure. The method entails measuring dew-point temperatures for a sample of identical units; after three sets of measurements are gathered, a time-to-fogging prediction is obtained using a mathematical forecasting model.
