Pages: 19-30


The purpose of this study is to evaluate the parameters of construction physics including form, orientation, the arrangement of activities, openings and materials in six sites of traditional homes in Hamedan and analysis of the effect of physical parameters on thermal comfort. Thus, in order to achieve physical characteristics, each construction is evaluated in terms of designing criteria. Then, the impact of the studied factors during the coldest and hottest days of the year is evaluated through software modeling. The results of the study confirm the role of buildings’ physical parameters in optimal energy use. The results indicate that houses with yards have more suitable thermal condition in comparison to houses with gardens. The differences in design, make the houses with yards in the thermal comfort area during warm seasons, and during the cold seasons, they will provide 30 to 40 percent efficiency of the heating energy through radiant energy efficiency.
