|Abstract: ||The building bioclimatic charts of Givoni are used to test whether passive downdraught evaporative cooling, in conjunction with night
ventilation, might yield thermal comfort in an o6ce building in Southern Europe. Dynamic thermal simulation indicated that the direct
evaporative cooling boundary, proposed by Givoni, was an unreliable indicator of the climatic conditions for which comfort could be
provided. New boundaries, de8ning the climatic limit of thermal comfort for direct evaporative cooling in o6ces, with di9ering levels of
internal heat gain, are proposed. For each one, a band of climatic conditions, within which comfort is sometimes achieved and sometimes
not, is also indicated.|
