Analysis of the thermal performance of a building design located at 2465m : Antalya-Saklikent National Observatory guesthouse

Demirbilek, Nur, Yalciner, Ugur. G, Ecevit, Ahmet, Sahmali, Erkan, & Inanici, Mehlika (2003) Analysis of the thermal performance of a building design located at 2465m : Antalya-Saklikent National Observatory guesthouse. Building and Environment, 38(1), pp. 177-184.

This study is based on thermal performance analysis and evaluation of the National Observatory guesthouse with the software SUNCODE-PC. The study is unique owing to its high-altitude site (2465 m) in a remote area, harsh climate (with almost no data available), and functional restrictions of astronomical facilities. The design is thermally evaluated through differant modes of application of insulation, materials, types of glazing, window/wall-ratios, Trombe walls, winter night insulation, summer ventilation and shading.

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.
