AbstractThis research is about disaster relief semi-temporary housing in China which based on disasters database, area selection and climate data in Yunnan Province, attempting to develop an effective and comfortable earthquake relief temporary shelter which can be processing both physical relief and psychological relief. The major components of this research are post-disaster analysis, project design, and computer simulation. By designing a new shelter model, we will try to identify different functions and reorganize them for the shelter in order to satisfy all special requests after disasters. After computer simulation, it will allow more energy efficient considerations and taking social responsibility to both the designing part and disaster relief process.
