Climatic Data

Chapter
Part of the Design Science and Innovation book series (DSI)

Abstract

This chapter presents climatic data and sun-path diagrams for 62 locations in India. This climatic data and sun-path diagram are commonly used for sustainable building design at different design stages: briefing, pre-conceptual, conceptual, preliminary and detailed. The climate information forms the basis of qualitative assessment of climate, the pre-conceptual analysis, the bioclimatic analysis (climate and comfort zone) and passive design strategies as well as cooling and heating load analysis of a given design for energy conservation. The sun-path diagram is used for solar control design.
