Design Tools for Passive Solar Applications

    Research output: NRELTechnical Report


    Examples of passive solar design tools are given, categorized as either evaluation tools or guidance tools. A trend toward microcomputer based tools is noted; however, these are usually developed for use by engineers rather than architects. The need for more instructive tools targeted specifically to designers is emphasized.
