AbstractNowadays, the knowledge of building ecology focuses on energy efficiency and how to integrate environmental and climatic parameters into HVAC and thus enhances space qualities such as comfort ability. The aim of this paper is to demonstrate the rule of Indirect Evaporative Cooling systems in sustainability of contemporary architecture in hotarid and hot-humid climate. An approach for integrating a novel Sub-Wet Bulb Temperature Evaporative cooler into contemporary architecture is presented. The system uses porous clay materials, as wet media, embedded with heat pipes heat exchangers, the supply air and working air flows were staged in separate ducts and in counter flow direction. Modelling and experimental results show that supply air would be cooled to below wet bulb temperature achieving a considerable cooling capacity and effectiveness. This performance would make the system a potential alternative to conventional mechanical air conditioning systems in buildings.
