Compilation of monthly world weather data and transformation into hourly basis for the calculation of air-conditioning load at an arbitrary location in the world | 1993 | English
Over the past decade developments in the building simulation field have given rise to the prospect of a new generation of design tool which has the potential to allow rigorous hypothesis testing at the design stage.
Application of the object oriented programming paradigm to building plant system modeling | 1993 | English
The object oriented (00) approach to software engineering offers new possibilities for the modelling of plant systems within a building context.
Dynamic simulation of combination of evaporative cooling with cooled ceiling system for office room cooling | 1993 | English
In view of the emerging radiant cooling technologies in the European market, a dynamic building thermal analysis program ACCURACY is enhanced to be able to do cooling-load calculations and annual energy analysis for rooms with cooled ceiling clima
A modular approach for developping a modeling environment of thermal systems: the SYMBOL project | 1993 | English
We present the SYMBOL project which is based on a modular approach of modeling.
The CLIM 2000 software environment was developed by the Electricity Applications in Buildings Branch of the French utility company, Electricité de France.
The efficacy of dynamic thermal simulation tools in practice is dependent not only on the facilities offered by the tools and the rigour of the underlying calculations but also on the skills of the user vis-a-vis abstracting the essence of the pro
The paper reports on the NODES project as a spin-off implementation of the EC-funded COMBINE project.
Development of a commercial sector load aggregation and DSM impact assessment methodology | 1993 | English
BC Hydro and their consultant have devised a method for aggregating hourly results from DOE2 computer energy models to simulate sector-wide impacts of commercial deman-side management (DSM) programs.
The use of simulation as a tool for assessing building thermal performance is a powerful technique but contains certain difficulties, which limit very much its application and even its dissemination.
Health and safety code compliance checking using an integrated hypertext and knowledge-based expert system | 1993 | English
Several older buildings have been found to violate the building code requirements with respect to health and safety of occupants.
ALLAN. SIMULATIONINEPTUNIX is a software designed at the GAZ DE FRANCE Research and Development Division and developed with the aid of CISI Ingenierie. It is a general software for the description and simulation of dynamic systems. ALLAN.
Design and evaluation in the early phases of the design process some problems and a solution | 1993 | English
This contribution contains the description of a design and evaluation system which is formulated for the early phases in the building design process. These phases include the conceptual and the preliminary design steps.
Active and passive solar designs work on the basis of complex interactions of conduction, convection, radiation, mass flows, feedback and control mechanisms which are inherently dynamic and often tightly coupled.
A new service has been developed to assist new home?builders to examine the design options with a view to improving the energy efficiency and comfort of their new home.
Building performance simulation is reviewed, with and emphasis on its role as a means to bring buildings into a better balance with the human and natural environments.
Computer-based simulation methods offer a powerful and flerible tool for building energy analysis.
Currently, building energy analysis programs employ models of fluorescent lighting systems which are much oversimplified and potentially inaccurate.
The SPARK simulation environment is an object based simulation environment. Its objects are equations or systems of equations. Creating SPARK objects requires from the user to write SPARK syntax and C code.
Building designers are increasing their use of computer software to more effectively take advantage of analytical tools that are useful to the design process.
