Does anyone know where to find detailed information about shading devises, especially vertical louver angles?

    I found something on "Time-Saver Standards for Architectural Design Data 1999" not exactly answers my question but very close, I will read try to derive something. But looks like the whole Solar Control- Ch-4 worth reading especially for PPD.

    Green Studio Handbook!!! Its by the author of MEEB and it basically is a graphic, step by step guide to the strategies. I love it!

    Thanks Alyssa, just checked it on Amazon, looks super helpful for PPD. I want to say everyone studying for PPD are expected to have a deeper understanding of shading devices, and their reaction to sun's position. This "deeper understanding" is beyond PA level folks! I understand everyone here is trying to help each other but some are really underestimating PPD by comparing it to PA. Wanted to give heads up.

    Elif,

    That is good advice.  What's odd is that I don't think I had one single question devoted to louvers or shading devices on my PPD exam!  It truly proves that everyone's test is different.
