|Abstract:||This dissertation is an investigation into the thermal performance of different building forms. Every building designed according to the requirements of client and architects view point but the thermal performance of building should be such that it provides the thermal comfort indoor. So for achieving this, thermal performance of basic geometrical building forms is calculated and a ready reckoner of surface area to floor area ratio (practically usable) is presented which can be used by architects and engineers at basic sketch design stage to provide comfort indoor. Surface area to floor area ratio is calculated using mathematical formulas. And ready reckoner is made. The computation was time consuming hence computer program using C� language is made for easy calculations. The computation became extremely complicated and multiple so I have used ecotect v5.20.software to calculate the thermal performance .|
