A Study on Sizing Solar Apertures for Ankara

Demirbilek, Nur & Kirbeyi, M. Nezih (2003) A Study on Sizing Solar Apertures for Ankara. In ISES 2001 World Solar Congress, 26-30 November, Adelaide.


This study aims to find optimum values for sizing the windows and Trombe walls and to develop rules of thumb for the climatic conditions of Ankara, which has cold and long winters and hot summers. On a test building having a floor area of 100 m² and a test room with a floor area changing from 10 to 50 m², the effect of the size of windows and Trombe walls on heating, cooling, and total energy needs of the room have been analysed by the help of the computer program named "SUNCODE". Computer simulations are carried out and optimum values for energy demand are obtained and tables are prepared.

Search Google Scholar™

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
