Building Climatic Classification in China
Different climate bring about different buildings, Climate has very close relation with architecture. Building climatic classification has important direction mean for architecture design, building energy efficiency and building energy simulation. Ago, China classified building climate using temperature, relative humidity, etc.. Degree, relative humidity and clearness index were regarded as classification factors. Meteorological data of 165 stations from 1970 to 2000 is used to reclassify building climate in China. Six types of building climates which respectively is Warm, Warm & humid, Weak solar radiation & humid, Cold & dry, Cold and Sever Cold & dry was obtained, character of every climate zone was summarized.
