After a short description of the physical phenomena involved, unified expressions are worked out describing net airflow and net heat flow through large vertical openings between stratified zones.

The methodology for validation of Building Energy Simulation Programs developed within the CEC concerted action PASSYS by the Model Validation and Development subgroup was presented at the IBPSA conference "Building Simulation '91" (Jensen and van

The technical systems of buildings have become increasingly complex during the last years. This has led to new challenges both in developing tools for operation, monitoring, fault detection and optimal dynamic control of the systems.
Ilari Aho, Mingzhe Xu, Juhani Hyvarinen
Weather data at thousands of stations throughout the world are compiled for air-conditioning load calculation using a personal computer. Several selected sources of weather data are introduced.

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.

A solar wall is a complex part of the building envelope, as it acts as an energy collector, passing solar energy from the exterior surface into the building with a time delay and in the same time reducing thermal losses during periods with no suns

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

The object oriented (00) approach to software engineering offers new possibilities for the modelling of plant systems within a building context.

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

We present the SYMBOL project which is based on a modular approach of modeling.
