The Indoor Air Quality Simulator for personal computers (IAQPC) has been developed in response to the growing need for quick, accurate predictions of indoor air contamination levels.
M. K. Owen, P. A. Lawless, D. S. Ensor
Air enthalpy control strategy, or often known as free cooling, has been very effective in conserving building air-conditioning power consumptions-in moderate climatic areas.
K. H. Yang, R. L. Hwang
Proposed construction of high rise buildings near the U. S. Naval Observatory in Washington D.C. caused astronomers to ask what effect the heat released by these buildings would have on their ability to make accurate observations.
Richard E. Hirst, Calvin A. Kodres
Experimental studies during the 1940S concluded that heat loss from slab-on-grade floors is proportional to floor perimeter length. More recent numerical investigations, however, indicate that area and shape are also important parameters.
Curtis O. Pedersen, William P. Bahnfleth
Several single zone, monthly based, correlation methods have been developed at a national level , ver the past few years.
Rik Van De Perre, A. Massart
Since methods incorporating the time value of money are the only ones that give an accurate picture of life costs of a system, they are the only methods appropriate for the analysis of building lighting systems.
M. Clay Belcher
The heat transfer processes occurring in the earth surrounding a building have a substantial effect on the building's energy consumption.
Curtis O. Pedersen, Joann Amber
COMBINE is a file utility program developed by Jeff Hirsch of Lawrence Berkeley Laboratories for use with the DOE2.1C building energy simulation program.
Michael Hatten
The paper presented is based on work done within the IEA ANNEX 10 'system simulation' group.There, eight research instituts discussed and agreed on simulation models for heating and air conditioning components.
W. Stephan
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
Stanley T. Liu, George E. Kelly
This paper describes a general purpose software, Florida Software for Engineering Calculations (FSEC 1.1), that is capable of solving various transport equations used in building science (e.g., combined heat and moisture transfer, fluid flow, cont

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.
Robert A. Rundquist, Jay P. Conniff
This paper describes the development of a new concept for analyzing the performance of fenestration systems.
R. Sullivan, S. Selkowitz
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
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.

The availability of daylight, including diffused sky light and direct sunlight, in urban open spaces is an important environmental factor in designing and regulating buildings in high density urban areas.
Jong-Jin Kim
An index of local thermal comfort and pollutant distributions have been computed with the TEMPEST computer code, in a transient simulation of an air-conditioned enclosure with an incomplete partition.
Mark White, L. Loren Eyler
Today energy saving rates due to retrofits in residential housing are either measured by experiment on site or predicted by system simulation.
Rolf Diemer
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.
