An Analysis of Design Strategies for Climate-Controlled Residences in Selected Climates
MetadataShow full item record
This paper presents preliminary results of efforts to test the boundaries of the Givoni-Milne (G-M, 1979) bioclimatic design strategy chart, using DOE-2 simulations of a code-complaint single-story, slab-ongrade, single-family residence in selected climates. The analysis includes graphical and tabular presentations of the annual hourly simulations superimposed upon the G-M bioclimatic chart using weather data from selected climates.
