Proc. ASME. ISEC2006, Solar Energy, 639-649, July 8–13, 2006
Paper No: ISEC2006-99150
... of the naturally ventilated building enables future installation of a mechanical cooling system by including features such as space for pipes and chillers. The benefits of the flexible design are energy savings, delay of capital costs and capability of mitigating the risk of a failed building (by installing...
