Abstract
Indoor air requirements must be connected to the outdoor weather condi tions. This is necessary when, for instance, simulating indoor thermal conditions, calculating air-conditioning loads or specifying contract conditions. A dimensioning weather model to be used in winter and sum mer conditions in Finland is presented. For winter it gives mean tempe ratures for 2- and 5-day-long cold periods and for summer hourly outdo or temperatures, solar radiation values and outdoor humidities for a 5 -day-long dimensioning period. The temperature level of the proposed w eather model is selected using the probability distribution of the gli ding mean temperatures of 2- and 5-day periods.
