Thermal Environmental Treatments for residential buildigs In the oil fields

The Iraqi Journal of Architecture and Planning, 2016, Volume 15, Issue 1, Pages 128-147

The industry growth and development was one of the reasons for the emergence of cities, the oil industry has been affected in the establishment of these cities in the environmental aspects, Oil fields are considered heavy industry areas.
The research aims: Identification of environmental treatments which make the building efficient thermally and therefore to reduce the impact of climatic conditions and pollution In urban complexes inside the oil fields .
The research concluded a set of conclusions which have been associated two sides: First side has been associated in the theoretical framework, the flipside link to the results of the practical application. The research found the environmental treatments of urban complexes Inside the local oil fields, Impact in improving the residential environment inside that complexes commensurate with distance from the sources of environmental pollution and improve the efficiency of the thermal performance of residential units..

Application of the Environmental Design Treatments in the Steps of Design Process, in Hot –Dry Climate

The Iraqi Journal of Architecture and Planning, 2016, Volume 15, Issue 1, Pages 19-34

Due to the cyclical changes of the climate during the year, it is imperative in the building design process that special consideration and treatments should be taken in order to protect the building from the climatic changes. These treatments should be used in the designing process in order to upgrade the building so that it should be highly efficient in its thermal control and accomplish the desired comfort to the occupants.
The multiplicity of the environmental treatments used in design and the wide spectrum of its effect that differ in accordance with the strategic target that was used for, resulted that its somewhat difficult for designer to be adequate by basic knowledge necessary in dealing with these treatments in the design.
The research finds conclusion that correlate the environmental design treatments with the thermal control strategies (for hot and cold seasons) and the steps of the design process. These conclusions stressed the importance of having a programmable theoretical order of the environmental design treatments to produce thermally efficient buildings.
