ans All ques.
Sketch wherever necessary

PART – A (10 x two = 20 marks)

1. What were the climate conscious factors considered in the built forms of ancient River valley civilizations?
2. elaborate the various shading devices used to protect openings in external walls?
3. Differentiate ranging from external, internal and ventilation load of heat gain or loss in a building.
4. What is a Day light Factor? elaborate the 3 components that contribute to the DF?
5. What is a Flatplate collector? How do you use the Flatplate collector to heat the space as well as water?
6. Differentiate ranging from Direct gain, Indirect gain and Isolated gain in Passive Solar heating.
7. discuss with a sketch, the function of a Solar Chimney.
8. How do you heat a space using a Solarium?
9. elaborate the differences ranging from evaporative cooling and nocturnal radiation cooling?
10. How does ‘Wind brakes’ and ‘shelter belts’ improve micro climate of a site?
