Dataset for ShelTherm

The dataset includes the ShelTherm files used to validate the thermal model with the seven prototypes in the refugee camp of Azraq (Case 01), against ISO 13792 (Case 02) and in other climates (Case 03). It also includes the Energy+ files for Case 01 and Case 03, the Admittance Method file for Case 01. The dataset of the monitored shelters at Azraq camp and outdoor temperatures are included in Case 01.

Data collection method:

The indoor conditions of each shelter were monitored using an iButton DS1923 sensor placed at the centre of the shelter. The exterior conditions are recorded with Tinytag TGP-4500 onsite sensors. The temperature accuracy of both sensors is +- 0.5°C. The relative humidity accuracy +- 0.5% for the shelter sensors, and of +- 0.3% for the external sensors
