Designing Windows for Interior Spaces for Thermal and Acoustic insulation
Assistant Professor Namer Kasim Khalaf, (Ph.D.)

The Importance of this research (Design windows for Interior spaces for thermal and sound insulation), lies in the positive necessities to design windows for the internal spaces which must have high type designing features. This is done through using modern techniques and modern materials which are applicable and marketable and matches the Iraqi environment. The Research aimed at:  Designing windows for the Interior spaces with modern specifications and features (heat & sound insulation).  Describing the materials and techniques included in the design of glass and the building's windows. The (Research Limitation) was limited to the subjective limit which is represented in the design of windows which isolate the heat and sound and the spatial limitations which are represented in the uses of these windows in designing the internal spaces for public and private buildings. Also, the current study was limited within its timing limitations on the date of designing the experimental study by the researcher in Year 2018. The Research Conclusions are:  Using the Nano-Technology including (Nano-Ceramic) is to find amended and developed features for the production a new type of hard glass which is unbreakable where paresis occurs a consequence of presence of spaces between the atoms. This problem was overcome by reducing the spaces to the minimum which enabled using this technology in designing the windows in addition to increasing the heat and sound isolation property for the glass of these windows.  Using various materials which are heat and sound insulators in various windows design joints, lead to an increase in the feature of the window deigned for heat and sound isolation. The research reached the following important results:  The designed sample is very effective for heat and sound isolation.  Possibility of producing this type of windows to isolate some public and special internal spaces and the specialized spaces which need high heat and sound isolation.
