AbstractThe paper describes the mathematical methods used in the " Room Thermal Transfer Functions" computer program. This program calculates room Z-transfer function coefficients for cooling, heating and space-temperature predictions. The program consists of two sections: in the first, calculations of detailed Z-transfer functions are based on a set of 29 heat balance equations for the various room enclosure surfaces. The second section of the program uses the detailed functions calculated by the first section to generate room transfer functions for each excitation component (such as solar heat gain and heat gain from occupants). It also generates several approximations of these functions that are represented by a small number of Z- transfer function coefficients.
