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.
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
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
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
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.
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
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.
Improvements to User-friendliness of a Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) Code for Simulation of Air Movement in Buildings. | 1993 | English
Starting from the basic governing equations for fluid flows, a three-dimensional computational fluid dynamics (CFD) code is described.
