  • Content Description: Research is being conducted on the attached-greenhouse type of passive solar heating system in the north-central region. The thermal performance of attached-greenhouse buildings is being analyzed in order to determine the component sizes and configurations which optimize performance. The analytical method is dynamic computer simulation using a thermal network model and actual hourly meteorological and solar radiation data from the north-central region. Progress has consisted of a large number of computer simulation runs resulting in performance estimates for certain designs. Preliminary conclusions on design guidelines are suggested by the results. The overall aim of the project is the development of specific design guidelines useful to architects and builders.
