ABSTRACT: Extreme high temperature and its duration related to design application is the main point which will be addressed in this paper. First, a brief mathematical review of extreme temperature analysis and its relation to “return period” will be presented. Next, based on analysis of the outdoor high temperature data from 1971 to 2000 in summer of each typical city of China, using frequency analytical method to imitate the high temperature data by Gumbel distribution, the high temperature distribution has been gained. Finally, the simulated effect is tested by distribution. This paper provides available complementarities for the selection of weather parameter for different heating, ventilating and air conditioning design standard, and can be consulted by correlated research.
