English abstract:
We present a systematic approach toward obtaining and analyzing long-term high-resolution thermal performance data from two traditional hammam buildings in Cairo (Egypt) and Ankara (Turkey). This approach involves collected data regarding local climate, indoor conditions, construction methods, building materials, energy systems, ventilation regimes, and occupancy patterns. Subsequently, the data is analyzed and interpreted with the reference of the buildings' salient design features. Furthermore, a digital performance simulation model of one of the hammams is generated and calibrated based on collected indoor climate data.
