Description

Significant underestimates of cooling loads can result from the use of rural temperature data. This guide presents the results of long-term measurements of air temperatures at 80 sites around London and includes on a diskette a design tool to allow the designer to modify Bracknell temperature data. It also outlines techniques to reduce the effects of the Central London heat island by careful design of the building and its surroundings.
