Solar chimney for enhanced stack ventilation
A steady state mathematical model has been developed for a solar chimney which is used to enhance the effect of thermally induced ventilation in buildings. The model takes into consideration different sizes of the openings ...
Fundamentals and characteristics of solar radiation
The calculation of solar radiation received at a particular place and at a particular time, involves many factors like rotation and revolution of the earth, atmospheric attenuations, atmospheric conditions, time of day and ...
Determination of glazing area in direct gain systems for three different climatic zones
This study determines the glazing area in direct gain passive systems needed to ensure thermal comfort inside a building (room air temperature 20 ± 2°C). A 4 m × 4 m × 3 m single zone isolated house is analyzed in three ...
Solar heat gain factors and heat loss coefficients for passive heating concepts
The concept of solar heat gain factor has been introduced for calculating the net energy gain of passive heating elements and other components of a building as a result of incident solar radiation. For passive heating ...
A study of solar chimney assisted wind tower system for natural ventilation in buildings
The concept of a solar chimney coupled with a wind tower to induce natural ventilation has been studied analytically in this paper. It is estimated that the effect of a solar chimney is relatively much higher for lower ...
Comparison of the periodic solution method with trnsys and suncode for thermal building simulation
Based on periodic solutions of the governing heat conduction equations in a single zone build- ing, computer software ADMIT has been developed for thermal simulation of buildings. Standard com- puter software, namely TRNSYS ...
