Abstract

Passive cooling systems use non-mechanical methods to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures and are a key factor in mitigating the impact of buildings on the environment.

Passive cooling seeks to use natural heat flows whenever possible. The purpose of passive cooling is to provide indoor comfort and a healthy indoor environment while reducing the energy costs associated with cooling, thereby eliminating or reducing overall running costs.
