Abstract: Two kinds of weather data for 20 Asian locations were developed in this paper. One is the Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) with the 8760-hour data including temperature, humidity, solar radiation, wind speed, wind direction and cloud cover. Another kind of weather data is for air-conditioning equipment design. The source data are the database from weather observation with three-hour intervals. The TMY data files were developed referring to the methods of TMYs of the US and Japan. A model to predict solar radiation developed by the authors was modified with the regional factors. The weather data for air-conditioning design were based on the frequency level of a specific temperature over a time period. The frequencies of 2.5% and 5.0% were selected to decide the design temperatures for the 20 Asian cities.
