Procedures for estimating and minimizing the incremental cooling load
associated with passive heating systems are provided.
A procedure for estimating the effect of control strategy on
performance is provided.
The present form of the design procedures may be updated in succeeding
years as the results of future research become available. In particular, a
quantitative treatment of passive cooling strategies is planned. In the
meantime, this edition will enable the user to design or retrofit buildings
in a manner that greatly reduces the use of non-renewable energy resources
