This dataset contains supplementary information to Roberts et al. (2019). Predictions of summertime overheating: Comparison of dynamic thermal models and measurements in synthetically occupied test houses. Building Services Engineering Research and Technology. 40 (4), 512-552.

This dataset comprises:

- File: "GuidanceforModellers_v1.pdf" - full guidance on how to model the Loughborough University Matched Pair test houses.

- File: "MeasuredTemperature_16Jun-6Jul_2017.xlsx" - hourly averaged measured operative temperature data for the period of 16 June to 6 July 2017 in the two test houses.

- File: "Weather_16Jun-6Jul_2017.xlsx" - weather data measured at the test houses and at the University SABCE weather station for the period 16 June to 6 July 2017.

- Folder: "Floorplan_Site_Elevations.zip" - .pdf/.dwg/.dxf files to help you model the test houses.

Please send all questions and suggestions to Ben Roberts (b.m.roberts@lboro.ac.uk).
