AbstractSolar radiation is one of the most important components of the heat balance at the outside surfaces of buildings, and the solar heat that enters a building through the windows is a major element in the total heat gain by the building. Accurate data on solar intensities are important, therefore, in several phases of building design, particularly in the design of the air conditioning system.
