The fundamentals of a probabilistic approximation in thermal buildings analysis is here briefly presented. However, the principal aim of this paper is to show the advantages of such simulation approach in many applications requiring massive simulations. Several examples are presented to illustrate the relevance of the proposed method as an alternative to deterministic simulations, and to show how it is a powerful tool for analysis. The developed simulation approach appears; as an extremely helpful method for comfort analysis in free-floating buildings. It has also been used to derive powerful methods for generating and evaluating typical meteorological. years
