Thermal performance optimization of building aspect ratio and south window size in five cities having different climatic characteristics of Turkey
Inanici, Mehlika & Demirbilek, Nur (2000) Thermal performance optimization of building aspect ratio and south window size in five cities having different climatic characteristics of Turkey. Building and Environment, 35(1), pp. 41-52.
The aim of the study is to establish optimum building aspect ratios and south window sizes of residential buildings from thermal performance point of view. The effects of 6 different building aspect ratios and eight different south window sizes for each building aspect ratio are analyzed for apartments located at intermediate floors of buildings, by the aid of the computer based thermal analysis program SUNCODE-PC in five cities of Turkey: Erzurum, Ankara, Diyarbakir, Izmir, and Antalya. The results are evaluated in terms of annual energy consumption and the optimum values are driven. Comparison of optimum values and the total energy consumption rates is made among the analyzed cities.
