English abstract:
This contribution describes a resent research effort to collect and analyse data concerning traditional bath buildings (>hammams<) in Egypt, Turkey, Morocco, Syria, and Algeria. Thereby, the energy performance of and the thermal comfort conditions in five hammams were studied. Moreover, empirically calibrated building performance simulation models were generated in order to predict the consequences of alternative thermal retrofit measures. The results provide the opportunity for an objective assessment of hammams´ actual energy and indoor environmental performance.
