Integrative Performance of the House and the Low-Cost for the Respondent to the Hot Humid Climate

Jamal Abed Al Wahid Jassim


Abstract: The study deals with the achievement of climate efficiency and makes the housing more suitable for the climate in the humid areas, including the city of Basra, because most exposed to solar radiation ceiling. The study provides an alternative architecture and simplified manner in the implementation of the ceiling manner (jack arching) Using light concrete blocks (Althermiston) with iron I-Section or joists concrete pre-processing, the study aims to provide extracted data from comparisons based on detailed accounts of a number of alternatives structural variables and design to help designers to approach in their designs of climate appropriate and minimize the total cost of the house. Comparative study analytical method based building model Default prevailing residence in the city of Basra and test study indicators with one computer energy simulation programs (Ecotect) for a number of building envelope components variables, guidance, as convergence, vents and comparing the performance of the model basis for drawing optimal design parameters. The results showed that the use of light concrete blocks for the walls and ceiling manner in which Scarves Find the most influential in reducing the transmitted energy by 39 % in summer and 25 % in winter and indicators combined 59 % in summer and 38 % in winter,
