  • This paper reviews the various possible methods of passive cooling for buildings and discusses the representative applications of each method. Passive cooling techniques are closely linked to the thermal comfort of the occupants, and it is possible to achieve this comfort by reducing the heat gains, thermal moderation and removing the internal heat. In the present review the various methods adopted under these techniques and the relevant information about the performance of each method reported… CONTINUE READING
