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.
Ren Janet X., Dalenbäck Jan-Olof
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).
Athienitis Andreas K.
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.
Dumitru Ruxandra, Marchio Dominique
An important aspect of the Texas LoanSTAR program has been the development of public domain software. These software are now available.   
Haberl Jeff S., Claridge David, Sparks Robert, Kissock Kelly
This paper describes research related to the New Zealand Building Code. It reports a survey ofinternational approaches to building energy performance regulation.
Isaacs Nigel, Donn Michael, Lee Jacky, Bannister Paul
This paper discusses development of a library of equation-based models for building HVAC system simulation.
Sowell Eduard F., Moshier Michael A.
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
Emmerich Steven J., Persily Andrew K.
New software (BASECALCTM) has been created for modelling heat losses from residential basements and slabs-on-grade.
Beausoleil-Morrison Ian, Mitalas Gintas, Mclarnon Cathy
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.
Iomas Kevin J., Eppel Herbert
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.
Jankovic L.
CONTAM94 is an easily used, public domain airflow and contaminant migration analysis program.combining algorithms for modeling airflow and contaminant dispersal in multizone buildings.
Walton George N.
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. 
Trombe A., Serres L.
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. 
Caccavelli D., Bedouani B., Baude J.
Analytical solutions to the heat flow equation in a dynamic insulation is presented. A numerical least:squares method, called the gradient method, to estimate the steady state and transient air flow through a dynamic insulation is presented.
Wallentém Petter
As part of a new Federal program to promote energy efficient retrofit of commercial buildings, voluntary private-sector partners evaluate potential envelope retrofits for their buildings.
Crawley Drury B.
Software packages form an integral part of the practices of most building design professionals today. Studies in the UK show that CAD is used in 81% of architectural practices.
Monaghan Paul F., Flynn Jim, Mellotte Marc
This paper presents; the evaluation, of the impact of a CO2-based DCV system, which was performed bycomputer simulation.
Zmeureanu Radu, Haghighat Fariborz
The Research and Development Division at Gaz de France assesses; and improves building heating and cooling equipment by both experimental and modelling/simulation approaches.
Jeandel Alexandre, Lefebvre Gilles, Nataf Jean-Michel, Oulefki Abdelhakim
Introduced in late 1993, MarketManager for Windows (MMWIN) is a productivity tool designed to meet the energy analysis needs of Utility DSM departments and of Performance Contractors.
Sonderegger Robert C.
This paper deals with the problem of empirical validation of thermal performance computer programs.
