The techniques employed traditionally to climatise buildings and provide cold water and ice for hot summers in iran's arid regions using solar and wind energy are described. These architectural techniques include wind towers to capture and circulate cool air to buildings, air cooling systems employing both evaporative and sensible cooling, domed roofs having an air vent at the apex for air circulation, and two ice making and storing systems. Although the development of some of these techniques… 


Cooling Performance Of Persian Wind Towers

In hot-dry regions of Iran typical buildings are made of mud and fired brick. Temperature, humidity and airflow control comfort within such buildings. These passive cooling buildings use nature’s

Low energy, wind catcher assisted indirect-evaporative cooling system for building applications

Increased consciousness of the environmental problems has aroused people’s interest of renewable energy systems, especially the application of green features in buildings. The demand for air

Persian Wind Towers: Architecture, Cooling Performance And Seismic Behaviour

Persian wind towers, badgirs, are passive building cooling systems that use nature to provide comfort to people in hot-dry regions. They catch fresh air and channel it down to cool the internal
