A two-storey wood frame house for the experimental study of hybrid residential ventilation was built in the campus of the Brno University of Technology in 2003.
Charvat, P.; Jicha, M.; Stetina, J.
In this paper, the design and development of a web databasefor the purpose of storing and processing data produced by a complete building energy analysis is presented.
Baryannis, G.; Stavrakakis, G.; Nikolaou, T.; Kolokotsa, D.
When an energy balance is calculated in accordance with DIN V 18599, an integrative approach is taken, i.e.
Erhorn, H.; de Boer, J.; Wössner, S.; Höttges, K.; Erhorn-Kluttig, H.
This paper looked into the possibilities of adaptive reusethrough the environmental retrofit of an existing warehouse.
Fong, C.
In November 2006 a “CO2 emission and energy saving potential through correct pipe insulation of space heating and domestic hot water distribution systems in the new and existing buildings.” paper [3], sponsored by Armacell - worldwide producer of
Chmielarski, J.
In this study we identify and describe the design strategiesadapted to the climate and used in ancient constructions.The research is focused on the information obtained from cases found in voras architecture.
Fernandes, J.; Correai da Silva, J.
In the last decades researches have indicated an extremelyhigh energy consumption of the building sector. Analysing the amount of consumed energy, it is showed that almost the 70% are expended for the heating and cooling loads of the building.
Chadiarakou, S.; Santamouris, M.
This paper describes major elements of the design of three low-energy solar homes in Canada. Two of these are part of a demonstration program. The major features of the houses are: 1.
Athienitis, A.K.
Daylighting control systems have quite high potential to reduce building’s energy consumption and peak demand. Despite this potential, reported poor performance, didn’t allow substantial increase in their installation rates.
Doulos, L.; Tsangrassoulis, A.; Topalis, F.
The scope of the current paper is to present two buildingprojects that have been designed within 2006 by Gavalas Architects & Associates.
Gavalas, A.
In many urban areas, pavements and roofs constitute over 60% of urban surfaces (roof 20-25%, pavements about 40%).
Akbari, H.; Menon, S.; Rosenfeld, A.
Solar gains are one of the most important factors of design for energy efficient buildings.
Axarli, K.; Vaitsi, C.
In modern, extensively glazed office buildings, due to high solar and internal loads and increased comfort expectations,air conditioning systems are often used even in moderate and cold climates.
Artmann, N.; Manz, H.; Heiselberg, P.
The consequences of the global climate change are perceptible even in Italy, where in the last 15 years the mean temperature values increased of 0.4 °C in the northern part of the country and of 0.7°C in the southern one.
Albatici, R.; Iannone, F.; Savorelli, A.
The application of system identification techniques to the energy performance assessment of buildings and building components requires a high level of knowledgeof physical and mathematical processes.
Bloem, J.J.
After the terrible consequence of the Iraq –Iran war and recently USA attack over Iraq the urban green covering disappeared from large areas of the city, beside the extension of the building over the green areas.
Al-musaed, A.; Almssad, A.; Khalil, S.
Heating and cooling buildings needs too much energy consumption; thing that is becoming rare and more expensive.Internal thermal comfort is essentially evaluatedaccording to bioclimatic conditions and energy consumption.So the aim of the study is
Bellara, S.; Abdou, S.
Since 1999, several widely used building energy efficiencystandards, including ASHRAE 90.1, ASHRAE 90.2, the International Energy Conservation Code, and Californias Title 24 have adopted cool roof credits or requirements.
Akbari, H.; Levinson, R.
As the UK Building Regulations demand better insulatedand more airtight new buildings, a potential cooling requirement is emerging in new build dwellings in the UK, leading to an increase in the market for domestic air conditioning systems in this
Ampatzi, E.; Knight, I.
Throughout architectural history, local buildings have used great in providing the most comfortable internal conditions possible within the exigencies and constraintsof local climate.In Iraqis climates, accelerating airflow through induces evapora
