Abstract In recent years, the construction of enclosed material yard projects has becoming an urgent requirement to improve ecological environment and living environment quality. Thin membrane structures have been widely used in industrial building, especially for storage building roofs. Due to the thermal-optical properties of translucent thin fabric material, such as the absorption and transmittance of solar radiation, the indoor thermal environment is seriously disturbed. Moreover, membrane building structures are usually irregular. Compared with conventional buildings material, the translucent thin fabric material particularly responsive to changes in external environment conditions. As a result, the solar radiation heat gain calculation of membrane buildings is complicated. It is worth exploring measures to tackle this problem. Therefore, in order to solve the problem that the relevant thermal-optical parameter is difficult to obtain. The 13 thin membrane samples were tested and the thermal optical characteristic parameters were analyzed in this paper. A practical enclosed membrane structure building was selected as the research object. In addition, a solar radiation heat transfer model was established. The indoor solar heat gain under the action of solar radiation heat was calculated and the effect of different light transmittance and absorptance on the indoor radiation heat gain was studied. It can provide reference for heat gain calculation and ventilation design of membrane structure storage buildings.
