CEN - EN ISO 13791

Thermal performance of buildings - Calculation of internal temperatures of a room in summer without mechanical cooling - General criteria and validation procedures

inactive, Most Current
Organization: CEN
Publication Date: 1 March 2012
Status: inactive
Page Count: 110
ICS Code (Thermal insulation of buildings): 91.120.10
scope:

This International Standard specifies the assumptions, boundary conditions, equations and validation tests for a calculation procedure, under transient hourly conditions, of the internal temperatures (air and operative) during warm periods, of a single room without any cooling/heating equipment in operation. No specific numerical techniques are imposed by this International Standard. Validation tests are included in Clause 8. An example of a solution technique is given in Annex A.

This International Standard does not contain sufficient information for defining a procedure able to determine the internal conditions of special zones such as attached sun spaces, atria, indirect passive solar components (trombe walls, solar panels) and zones in which the solar radiation may pass through the room. For such situations different assumptions and more detailed solution models are needed (see Bibliography).
