Abstract: In this presentation, different roof and wall designs/treatments have been proposed, incorporating modern and ancient features together, for passive cooling. On the basis of their thermal analysis (by solving energy balances of different components of roof and walls, etc.), the variation of living room temperature in different cases has been computed numerically for Jodhpur (India). The climatic conditions of Jodhpur are characterized as hot and dry. It is inferred that (a) evaporative cooling with an air cavity in the roof is the best option to reduce the incoming heat flux through the roof if water is easily available and (b) a thin layer of cow dung slurry inside the wall cavity reduces the incoming heat flux through the walls. It is better than solid walls and air cavity walls.
