Abstract

This paper examines air-conditioning loads by several air-conditioning patterns and heat methods of a super high-rise residence by using the dynamic simulation software "THERB" (the simulation software of the thermal environment of residential buildings) which can estimate temperature, humidity, sensible temperature, and heating/cooling load for multiple zones of buildings. As high-rise residences, the ratio that the structural skeleton dominates a floor area is bigger than that of ordinary residences, and its skeleton is used concrete generally. Heat capacity has a considerable impact on air-conditioning load of high-rise residences. Meanwhile, aspects of air-conditioning style, heat insulation style, structural form and building direction affect to air-conditioning load of high-rise residences significantly. Recently, high-rise residences are to be more and more important factor in our life with its rapid development. It is respected that most people will chose high-rise residences, because of its popularization. Therefore, we must reduce energy consumption for keeping environment load reduction in high-rise residences. Based on above mentioned, heat environment impact on high-rise residences will become an important issue in our society.
