Temperature measurements for the system with glass covers, without a chimney, closed in the morning and opened in the afternoon
Grahic Jump Location
Temperatures for the system with glass covers and a chimney, closed in the morning and opened at about 14:00: a) measured temperatures inside the system and of the metal sheets; b) measured and simulated temperatures inside the first and second stories; c) measured and simulated temperatures inside the third story
Grahic Jump Location
Experimental results for the system with glass covers and a chimney, opened from the morning: a) temperatures inside the system and of the metal sheets in summer; b) comparison of the temperatures of the metal sheets in summer and autumn
Grahic Jump Location
Temperature measurements in the control experiments: a) the system closed for a whole day. b) the system opened from the morning and then closed at 15:45
