AbstractThese tables give the solar data needed for designing an air conditioning system by either the traditional hand- calculating procedures or digital computer techniques. They have been prepared in exactly the same way as the tables in the ASHRAE Handbook of Fundamentals (1967), but are for the latitudes of particular relevance in Canada and for small enough increments of latitude that interpolation is unnecessary. The data are in the engineering units commonly used in North America (Btu/ft[2]hr); and in the International System (watt/metre[2]), which is coming into use throughout the world.
