Architectural approach to the energy performance of buildings in a hot-dry climate with special reference to Egypt

Abstract

A thesis is presented on the changing approach to architectural design of buildings in a hot, dry climate in view of the increased recognition of the importance of energy efficiency. The thermal performance of buildings in Egypt is used as an example and the nature of the local climate and human requirements are also studied. Other effects on the thermal performance considered include building form, orientation and surrounding conditions. An evaluative computer model is constructed and its applications allow the prediction on the energy performance of changing design parameters.
