Abstract: This paper aims to determine the performances of the solar chimney system under a hot and wet tropical weather using an actual full scale solar chimney installed in an operating building. Results showed that under cloudy conditions, the low solar irradiance can induce an average air speed of 1.5 m/s and 0.4 m/s within the solar chimney ducts and classroom respectively. The second objective examines the influences of the position of the solar chimney inlet on the air speed and movement within the classroom. Experimental data and smoke test results showed that lowering the inlet to occupancy's height significantly increased the air speed to a maximum of 0.6 m/s within the classroom. Further research is required to determine the combine effects of the position of the solar chimney inlet and fenestrations on the classroom. © 2012 ASCE.
