Type of article: Informatory note

Summary

Passive cooling concerns different applications including prevention and reduction of heat gains, and heat dissipation. The first two measures will not be considered here.

Heat dissipation technology aims to exchange the excess heat between a building and a lower temperature sink such as the sky, the ground, the water, or the ambient air. The requirements are:

- The existence of an environmental heat sink with a suitable temperature difference with the heat to be dissipated.
- A thermal coupling between the building and the sink.
- The heat dissipation processes that are considered here are:
- Coupling of the room to be cooled with the ground or an aquifer.
- Night ventilation cooling.
- Radiative cooling towards the sky.
- Evaporative cooling.
