Paper Title:
Influence of Opening Ratio on the Energy Conservation of Residential Building
  Abstract

This study aims to simplify the calculation steps as a reference for architects to check if the estimated value of ratio of equivalent transparency (Req) can meet the basic requirement of code. This study uses simulation tool to analyze the variations on energy conservation of residential buildings by two general residential building types in Taiwan. Basing the analysis data, this study finds out the 16-orientation minima and maxima energy conservation values and then establishes a guideline. The findings reveal if we control the ratio of opening of building envelop not exceeding 24% on terraced houses and not exceeding 38% on retail shops, the design can meet the basic requirement of code in all orientations.
