  • HEADING The aims of this study it to improve conditions inside Bedouin tents shelters and to develop tools to assess shelter quality and comfort. A prototype tent was tested in hot conditions with an internal vapor load. Temperature, humidity measurements and air speed were taken inside the shelter while the external temperature was maintained at 40°C (104°F). Building performance simulation was conducted to produce a simulation model. A model of a tent was constructed using the EnergyPlus… CONTINUE READING
