Article
There are two natural ventilation strategies, namely single-sided and cross ventilation. For a building with a deep layout plan and where cross ventilation is impossible, single-sided ventilation is used. This study aimed to compare the performance of both strategies using sliding glass windows. The method used was field measurement, which was exec...
Article
Civilization and urbanization are the two key demands of humans in the 20th century. Over the last few decades, a considerable number of the human population have moved to urban areas. This phenomenon has led to an explosion of the population in some of the major cities around the globe, including in Saudi Arabia. Urban Heat Island (UHI) is a clima...

This study aims to examine the impact of user sensory stimuli aspects (comfort, passive and active engagements, relaxation, and discovery) on the efficient use of urban squares in Erbil, Iraq, through public interaction. A questionnaire survey (298 respondents) was employed to collect users’ opinions and was validated through expert interviews (13...

The density and pattern of urban development can significantly influence the thermal environment in these areas. Several research studies have underlined the asymmetry of urban air temperature by using parameters such as an increase in mean temperature, decline in amplitude, and substantial phase delay in closely constructed buildings. This researc...
Article
Thermal comfort performance of three vacant naturally ventilated Royal Malaysia Police (RMP) case study lockups (LK1 in Penang, LK2 in Melaka & LK3 in Kuala Lumpur) was measured during monsoon change period from Northeast Monsoon to Southeast Monsoon. According to NGO’s report and previous studies, the lockups condition is very poor and hot which c...

In recent years, numerous simulation softwares have been created, upgraded, and being used for building thermal performance. Integrated Environmental Solutions-Visual Environment (IES-VE) is considered as one of the common thermal performance simulation programs. This paper discusses the investigation on the accuracy of IES-VE software in simulatin...

Industrialized building system is an innovative building technology that provide faster, cleaner, neater, and more quality construction. Bibliometric quantification has been done to determine the amount of publications for this novel research area considering the scientific literature that are available from the Web of Science and to find the most...
Article
Full-text available
The prime objective of this study is to investigate the passive design strategies and their potential application for improving the indoor thermal condition of naturally ventilated low-cost single story detached houses in Malaysia. In order to fulfil the objective, field measurement was conducted on a typical low-cost single story detached house in...

Green façade (GF) is one of vertical greenery systems used as passive solutions applied on building façade in improving indoor thermal environment and energy efficiency. However, optimum improvement of thermal environment from GF is dependent on the overall foliage coverage established on the system itself. Higher percentage coverage of the foliage...
Conference Paper
Indoor air temperature is one of the most notable variables to determine indoor thermal comfort. In Malaysia, occupants' of low-cost houses still have an issue of overheating due to poor design. It is important to measure several parameters of thermal comfort in order to identify the existing indoor thermal condition of a low-cost house. The main o...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Thermal comfort is an important factor for a good indoor environment quality (IEQ) of a house. Generally, in low-cost housing development, thermal comfort issues are neglected. This is due to many factors but mostly for the constraint in construction cost. Poor thermal comfort could lead to an unhealthy indoor environment thus could lead to poor oc...

Full-text available
An appropriate selection of climbing plant for Green Façade (GF) is a crucial step to achieve optimum performances for a better living sustainable environment. The main target is to avoid frustration towards expectation on effectiveness of this passive cooling technique. Climbing plants on GF provide shades and intercept amounts of solar radiation...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Green façade (GF) is a passive cooling technique in providing better sustainable living environment especially in thermal performance. Objective of this study is to evaluate thermal impact on application of GF attached to bare opaque wall. The evaluations are conducted on ambient air and surface temperature. A comparison study via stationary experi...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Green façade (GF) is attached on external building wall to intercept an amount of excessive global solar radiation towards vertical building envelope. An improvement on habitable thermal environment is led by reduction of incident solar radiation on the external façade of wall. The main objective of this study is to investigate the amount of solar...
