Thermal comfort under transient seasonal conditions of a bioclimatic building in Greece | 2007 | English
Macroclimatic forces have been important factors ever since man first constructed shelter.
The principal intention of the present study is the analysisof the both physical and social conditions of a rural community near to the City of Guadalajara in Mexico, with the purpose of establishing the environmental necessaryparameters to realiz
Solar gains are one of the most important factors of design for energy efficient buildings.
In many urban areas, pavements and roofs constitute over 60% of urban surfaces (roof 20-25%, pavements about 40%).
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.
Dynamic Analysis Methods and Modelling. Application to Energy Performance Assessment | 2007 | English
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.
Passive natural cooling techniques for wooden buildings in warm climate: case study | 2007 | English
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.
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.
Knowledge extraction from energy certification of buildings – Results from the ENPER-EXIST project | 2007 | English
The ENPER-EXIST project was initiated and coordinated by Centre Scientifique et Technique du Bâtiment (CSTB) within the framework of the Intelligent Energy Europe (IEE) programme.
For the assessment of air to air heat recovery systems in ventilation systems, efficiency seems to be the major evaluation parameter, although other parameters such as pressure drop, frost behavior and power consumption of fans can play an importa
To predict ventilation and related air flow parameters, a lot of calculation techniques could be utilized; however the main difficulties concern ease of use and the providingof input data.
Optimal indoor air quality, thermal comfort and energy conservation in schools is of great importance. A new development in indoor climate control in schools is hydronicradiant heating and cooling (HRHC).
The objective of this paper is to evaluate the usefulness and the accuracy of an artificial neural network (ANN) as a prediction tool of the wind pressure coefficient (Cp). The ANN is applied to predict the Cp for rectangularbuildings.
Due to the lack of national building regulation regardingthe energy requirements of Directive 2002/91/EC (EPBD) in Greece, Southern countries (Italy, Spain and Portugal) have been selected as index reference because of the similar climatic conditi
Case study of the weighed factors of stack effect and the reduction alternatives in tall complex building | 2007 | English
The purpose of this case study is to analyze stack effect problems and to develop the method minimizing stack effect in the tall complex building in the winter season. The main problems in tall complex building occur in high-rise elevators.
Ventilation of Dutch schools presently insufficient; an integral approach to improvedesign | 2007 | English
Indoor Air Quality and thermal climate in schools is problematicin many countries. The status quo in the Netherlandsis presented (e.g. average CO2 levels in schools, problems with ventilation).
Residential active cooling toward snowy cold region in japan andhuman temperaturesensitivity for passive and low energycooling | 2007 | English
Results of survey on residential active cooling as the diffusion rate of air conditioner in five principal cities of in Japan, and those associated “human temperature sensitivity” for passive and low energy cooling are described.
Building industry is often regarded as a mature and traditionalsector, in which the technological development is not so accelerated as in other cases.The increasing costs for electric energy, heating and climatization,the dramatic environmental is
An investigation into parameters affecting an optimum ventilation design of high density cities | 2007 | English
For a high density city, given the need to accommodate a fix amount of building volume, what can one do to optimise the benefits of the natural (air) environment?
