There are two almost orthogonal aspects that need to be considered when looking at the use of design tools by the profession, the integration of the design tools "around" the product being designed and the integration of the tools "into" the proce

Comparison of cost and energy savings in an existing large building as predicted by three simulation programs | 1995 | English
Three energy analysis programs (BESA-Desian, PC-BLAST and MICRO-DOE2. 1 D) were used by threeresearchers to evaluate the energy and cost savings in a larae existing office building located in Montreal.
In computer simulation, accurate modelling of air conditioning equipment is important in the studies of dynamic plant performance, for instance in the selection process of a plant control scherne, in the investigation of plant energy consumptions,
The ability to integrate a range of disparate design tools has been an area of intense research throughout the world.
In order to improve upon previous calibration techniques, this paper presents new calibration methodsincluding a temperature bin analysis to improve hourly x-y scatter plots, a 24-hour weatherdaytype bin analysis to allow for the evaluation of hou
Description induced by modelisation methods in the case of building thermal simulation | 1995 | English
Two main modelisation techniques are the analytic and systemic methods. After a presentation of each method applied to building simulation, this paper emphases the benefit of systemic modelisation for multizone cases.
Implications of room air motion on control of thermal comfort in rooms with natural convection heat sources | 1995 | English
Electric and hydronic baseboard heating systems rely on natural-convection-driven air motion to distribute energy throughout a space to maintain thermal comfort. For electric baseboard heating systems employing an on/off control scherne, the room
Night ventilation for cooling purposes: part I- reference building and simulation model | 1995 | English
The aim of this study is to form the basis of a further analysis on night ventilation for cooling purposes in modern Swedish office buildings.
A new approach for computer-aided thermal analysis of buildings is presented. It is based on an electronic book "Building Thermal Analysis" which operates in a mathematical programmingenvironment (Mathcad).
Fault identification in air handling units using physical models and neural networks | 1995 | English
The main purpose of this paper is to develop fault detection modules for BEMS (Building Energy Management Systems), a software to aid building operators in detecting and diagnosing faults in HVAC systems.
An important aspect of the Texas LoanSTAR program has been the development of public domain software. These software are now available.
This paper describes research related to the New Zealand Building Code. It reports a survey ofinternational approaches to building energy performance regulation.
This paper discusses development of a library of equation-based models for building HVAC system simulation.
The impact of central forced-air heating and cooling system modifications on the levels of selected pollutants in single-family houses was evaluated by simulating pollutant concentrations due to a variety of sources in eight houses with typical HV
New software (BASECALCTM) has been created for modelling heat losses from residential basements and slabs-on-grade.
Empirical validation of three thermal simulation programs using data from a passive solar building | 1995 | English
There is a continuing need to validate detailed thermal simulation programs of buildings. One way of doing this is to compare program predictions with measured building performance data. This is known as empirical validation.
InteSys Limited has developed a new dynamic simulation model for buildings, which emerges by itself as it receives the data or signals from the building under consideration.
CONTAM94 : a multizone airflow and contaminant dispersal model with a graphic user interface | 1995 | English
CONTAM94 is an easily used, public domain airflow and contaminant migration analysis program.combining algorithms for modeling airflow and contaminant dispersal in multizone buildings.
This study was carried out on a real site gymnasium situated in the center of France. The building is equipped with two remarkable energy saving systems; running together: a ventilated roof and an air-earth exchanger.
The Centre Scientifique, et Technique du Bâtiment and Gaz-de-France carried out a comprehensive study for providing professionals with dimensioning rules for hot water floor heating systems.
