English abstract:
This paper explores the implications of alternative design options for the thermal performance of office buildings in Cairo, Egypt. Three typical office floor plans were selected for the investigation. Multiple design alternatives were considered involving various glazing and shading types, shading schedules, thermal insulation options orientations, and ventilation scenarios. A numeric thermal simulation application was used to model the performance of these alternatives parametrically. The results show the significant degree to which deisgn measures could reduce cooling requirements of (and overheating tendencies in) office buildings in Cairo
