In a typical computer-based building energy management system (BEMS) for HVAC applications, pertinent variables such as pressure, temperature, fluid flow rate, valve and damper positions and the open/close status of the flow control devices, are m

Over the past 5 years, Dubin-Bloome Associates (DBA) and Ross & Baruzzini, Inc. (R&B) have jointly been working on a project to determine the relationship of the air conditioning load caused by building lighting with time.

Building energy analysis programs have undergone a slow evolution since arrival over a decade ago. The frequency of use and number of applications for these sophisticated modeling tools seems to have reached a plateau.
Dwight A. Beranek, Linda K. Lawrie
This paper describes the development of a new concept for analyzing the performance of fenestration systems.
R. Sullivan, S. Selkowitz
Traditionally, the lighting engineering community has emphasized illuminance, the amount of light reaching a surface, as the primary design goal.
Gregory J. Ward, Francis M. Rubinstein
The task is for COMIS to develop a reliable and well running multizone infiltration model on a modular base.

Today energy saving rates due to retrofits in residential housing are either measured by experiment on site or predicted by system simulation.

The current generation of building simulation software is based upon separate building and mechanical system simulations.
Michael J. Witte
Lighting energy conservation measures are typically recommended in commercial bui1ding energy audits. Over 60% of the cost in Bonneville Power's commercial building energy conservation programs are related to lighting.
Timothy R. Steele
Collaborative efforts among building simulation researchers in Europe and the US have resulted in wide acceptance of certain features as necessary attributes of future simulation environments.

Some details of the optimization work conducted over the last five years in a high rise office complex are described.
Z. Cumali, O. Sezgen
This paper describes the techniques for validating dynamic thermal models devised by collaborating institutions in the United Kingdom.
David P. Bloomfield
Modellers ands users of simulation softwares need to agree on a standard way to state the physical bases of their models The proposals presented in this paper are not new; they refer to the very classical way of describing thermodynamical systems.
Jean Lebrun
This paper describes a recently developed, multi-chromatic lighting simulation model, known by the acronym DIM (Digital Illumination Model).
