The paper predicts and studies on the cooling loads of the pavilions in 2010 Shanghai World Expo based on the general planning of the expo. The simulation models are established using DOE-2, for the various pavilions: 5 permanent pavilions, national pavilions, international organization pavilions, corporate pavilions, and temporary exhibition pavilions. The modularization method is used to simplify the simulation models of the temporary exhibition pavilions. The cooling loads of the various pavilions from May 1st to Oct 31st 2010 are simulated and analyzed, including hourly cooling loads, monthly cooling loads and hourly cooling loads on summer design day. Lastly, three factors — weather, visitor flow rate and outdoor air supplying mode, are selected to conduct the uncertainty analysis on their impact on the cooling loads.
