Abstract
By : Emad S. Mushtaha, Taro Mori, Enai Masamichi

 
Several calls have been everywhere asking for proper use of passive design tools like shading devices, insulation, natural ventilation and solar panels in building architecture of hot-dry area in order to improve the thermal performance of indoor spaces. This paper examines the effect of these passive tools on indoor thermal performance which in turn helps arrange thermal priorities properly. Herein, basic principles of Successive Integration Method (SIM) have been utilized for an integrated design of two floors with small openings integrated with floor cooling, solar panels, natural ventilation, shading devices, and insulation. As a result, create priorities of passive tools that are structured consequently for ventilation, insulation, solar panels, and shading devices. This structure could guide designers and builders to set their priorities for the new development of building construction.
Keywords : Passive Design, Natural Ventilation, Insulation, Shading devices, Hot and Dry climate.
