Evaluative application of UKCP09based downscaled future weather years to simulate overheating risk in typical English homes (2013)
Journal Article
Gupta, R., Gregg, M., du, H., & Williams, K. (2013). Evaluative application of UKCP09based downscaled future weather years to simulate overheating risk in typical English homes. Structural Survey, 31(4), 231-252. https://doi.org/10.1108/SS-01-2013-0005

To critically compare three future weather year (FWY) downscaling approaches, based on the 2009 UK Climate Projections, used for climate change impact and adaptation analysis in building simulation software. The validity of these FWYs is assessed thr... Read More about Evaluative application of UKCP09based downscaled future weather years to simulate overheating risk in typical English homes.
