Full Description

This paper presents the results of an extensive parametric study of the dynamic response of building cooling loads to heat gains. These results are in the form of tables that classify zones in terms of seven of their physical properties and according to their dynamic response characteristics. weighting factors and other data are also given. The principal application of these results will be to allow calculation of tables of Cooling Load Temperature Differences (CLTns) and Cooling Load Factors (CLFs) for a small number o£ representative zones that cover the wide range of zones found in practice. Additionally, they will allow for adjustment to the solar CLFs in the 1981 ASHRAE Handbook—Fundamentals to account for carpets, room size, ceiling, and exterior wall weight. This work was carried out under ASHRAE research project RP-359. The methodology employed is described in a companion paper.
