An investigation was conducted into temporary modular housing for use in disaster areas to assess the feasibility of energy independence. Flexible modular units have been proposed as a temporary housing solution in disaster areas, as they can be deployed in combination with energy units across a wide range of environments. A dynamic energy simulation was used to examine the heating/cooling. Hanifi Z () Housing design in relation to environmental comfort – a comparison of the traditional Malay house and modern housing.

Passive design strategies for residential buildings in a hot dry climate in Nigeria O. K. Akande Architecture Programme, Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University, Nigeria Abstract The hot dry climatic zone of Nigeria is characterized by a period of high temperature and low relative humidity between February and May. Between. Closed courtyards adjacent to houses are a common element in the architecture of arid and semi-arid zones. While serving a variety of social aspects of life in these areas, it is also believed that these courtyards provide a pleasant place to spend time in, and that they also improve the micro-climate inside the building by providing a source of cooler air for ventilation.

1. Introduction. Using the freely available solar energy is an extremely attractive option for low end application like domestic water heating, especially in India which receives a mean daily solar radiation in the range of 5–7 kWh/m 2 with more than sunny days in a water heating is cost effective for India and can reduce India's demand for oil, gas and coal if pursued to.   Design considerations for buildings in tropical climates with special reference to hot-dry, warm-humid and composite climates References: 1) “Manual of Tropical Housing & Buildings (Part-II)” by Koenigsberger 2) “Housing, Climate and Comfort” by Martin Evans 3) “Buildings in the tropics” by Maxwell Fry 4) Climate Responsive.

B Passive design for houses in arid and temperate climates. In arid and temperate climates, houses must remain cool in the extremely hot summers and warm in cold winters.

The air temperature is often hotter than in tropical climates, and there is little relief provided by rain or breezes during the day, so people tend to shut up their houses against the extreme outside temperatures.

Maximum daytime summer temperature goes as high as 45 degree centigrade and relative humidity as low up to 20 %. This type of climate is experienced in areas far from sea coasts and do not receive heavy rainfall. B Passive design in tropical zones Tropical climates are generally characterised by hot, wet summers, high levels of humidity and little change between day and night temperatures.

Movement of air is an important strategy for cooling people down, because the body has more difficulty cooling itself with sweat in humid climates.

Large part of North–Western India has Hot Arid climate which is characterised by hot summers, humid monsoon, and extremely cold winters, and also there is a difference in daily maximum and mean temperatures of as much as 15 to 20°C and this results in high energy demand to achieve comfort conditions.

In hot arid climate, residential neighborhoods are responsible for the high request of energy to provide cooling needs for the occupants’ main problem is the non-responsive contemporary urban design to human thermal comfort and energy efficiency.

The traditional walls in hot, arid climates were made of mud, which provided a great degree of thermal insulation. The use of concrete masonry units, a low maintenance high strength material, results in significantly higher room temperatures and hence uncomfortable habitation.
