  6. Solar Radiation and Daylight Models

    2nd Edition

    By Tariq Muneer

    The cost of operating a building far exceeds the cost of constructing it, and yet until recently little attention was paid to the impact of solar radiation on the costs of heating, cooling and ventilation. And now that there has been a surge in interest in energy efficiency and solar design,...
