Abstract—Iranian vernacular architecture has been formed in accordance with climate features. Among the climate factors, the wind plays an important role in creating thermal comfort in residential buildings. One of the architectural elements that have been formed in concordance with the flow of local winds, in hot and humid climate of Iran, is “Shanashir”. Shanashir is a semi-open space that is attached to the external wall of the building construction like a tape balcony. The objective of this research is to study the performance of SHANASHIR on conducting and the effectiveness of the flow of winds on mitigation of thermal state inside the residential buildings and consequently thermal comfort of their residents. In response to the above objective this paper using simulation program (Fluent software) is going to find the effectiveness of Shanashir in adjusting wind speed and consequently indoor thermal comfort condition. An analytical method has been employed, based on measurement of wind speed in the neighborhood and back side of SHANASHIR and rooms attached to this element to compare changes in wind speed in residential areas.

Index Terms—shanashir, thermal performance
