Updated Standard Includes New Climate Zone, Climatic Data
The newly updated Standard 169 from ASHRAE, Climatic Data for Building Design Standards, is a comprehensive source of climate data for building design, and provides a variety of climatic information for designing, planning and sizing building energy systems and equipment.
The ASHRAE Research Project replaced all data and tables in the standard.
An additional “Extremely Hot” Climate Zone 0 with humid (0A) and dry (0B) zones has been added, and the standard now includes climatic data for 5,564 locations throughout the world.
Standard 169 now includes climate zone maps for the entire world, as opposed to the 2006 standard which only included the US.
The standard touches on dry-bulb, dew-point and wet-bulb temperatures; enthalpy; humidity ration; wind conditions; solar irradiation; latitude; longitude; and elevation for locations worldwide.
Standard 169 also includes statistical data, such as mean temperatures; daily ranges; degree hours; and seasonal percentages within ranges of temperatures, to name just a few.
