About This Item


Full Description

Examines the uncertainty associated with the Design Weather Conditions (DWC) as found in the ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals. The study is organized around three main objectives.

The first objective is to determine the error associated with typical data limitations like non-homogeneous data, incomplete data, and insufficient data.

The second objective is to develop methods to estimate the percentiles of hourly dry-bulb temperature from daily data and to estimate humidity related design weather conditions when no humidity data is available.

The final objective is to determine the frequency and duration of episodes during which the ASHRAE DWC are met or exceeded.
