Research output: Contribution to journalConference article


The effect of internal load radiative/convective split variation on cooling loads are investigated using a complete formulation of fundamental balance principles, called the heat balance (HB) method. The model used for a heat balance procedure is reviewed and a case study of the effects of changing the mode split on load calculations is presented for Wedge 1 of the Pentagon building.
