Abstract / Description

Overheating factors are not understood by designers at early design stage both the operation and construction of buildings directly influence when air condition is adopted in dwellings,using TM52 the sensitivity of variables is studied to mitigate overheating events to achieve comfortable buildings. Air velocity, thermal mass and shading are the most influential mitigation factors against overheating but realistic values are required to understand the implications of design choices made.Glazing in the normal range has a low effect on overheating outcome but shading features are required for larger glazed areas to stop excessive solar gain and uncomfortable conditions during occupied hours.
