Abstract : A 'worksheet' approach is used in that the user may work through an example passive solar design by following the text in the report. Included are tables for heating degree days, solar heat gains, building R factors, orientation factors, roof overhang designs, etc. Performance is calculated on a monthly basis. The reports are presented for five geographical regions with content and text format similar, differing only in the appropriate regional factors. This volume gives appropriate designs for Navy installations in regions with cold climate.
