Experimental and numerical study of a passive wall solar chimney with evaporative cooling used for cooling
application in Iraqi climate was investigated. The model was used made of wood with dimensions of (2.5m 1.29m 
1.07m) and copper absorber plate. The numerical simulation was done by ANSYS software for May and June. It was
found that, the using of evaporative cooling and passive cooling solar chimney decreased the temperature inside the
space by 8.5°C lower than ambient temperature experimentally and 5.8°C numerically.
