BIB 08: An Annotated Bibliography: Passive Cooling Technology for Office Buildings in Hot Dry and Temperate Climates

Limb M.J., 1998
Bibliographic info: 1998, 39pp, Code BIB 8
Languages: English Pages (count): 39

This bibliography outlines the main features and design considerations of passive cooling ventilation systems. It draws on current research and case studies to provide a comprehensive and authoritative review, dealing with the prevention of heat gains (through location, landscaping, building morphology, shading and other solar control techniques); the modulation of heat gains (by thermal storage and night cooling) and heat dissipation methods (using natural ventilation, radiative cooling, evaporative cooling and earth cooling).
