Multizone airflow modelling is used for IAQ analysis as well as evaluation of cooling potential in buildings. A detailed evaluation of the wind pressure distribution on the envelope of a building is important for multizone: airflow modelling.
This paper presents the concept of an "open" simulation environment for performance-driven designexploration as a multi-directional approach to computer-aided daylighting modeling.
A statistical methodology for model validation in the allan: simulation environment | 1995 | English
This paper deals with the model validation methodology used at the Gaz de France Research & Development Division. The primary emphasis is on the latest developments, concerning different statistical methods for model validation and diagnosis.
This paper deals with the problem of empirical validation of thermal performance computer programs.
A simulation approach to determine a visual comfort index including daylight for adequate building performance evaluation | 1995 | English
Building performance evaluation requires accepted standards for comparison. Thermal comfort conditions are widely accepted. This is different for lighting issues: currently set standards are far from describing user comfort sensations.
A new dynamic simulation model for buildings has been developed which emerges by itself as it receivesdata or signals from the building under consideration.
Advancing lighting and daylighting simulation: the transition from analysis to design aid tools | 1995 | English
This paper explores three significant software development requirements for making the transitionfrom standalone lighting simulation/analysis tools to simulation-based design aid tools.
There is increasing interest in Europe in the use of displacement ventilation and chilled ceiling coolingsystems.
In this paper we review the basic concepts of the Neutral Model Format for component description, of the SPARK objet-based simulation environment, and present a translator from NMF to SPARK.
Dealing with issues of acquiring and accessing design knowledge in the conceptual stage of the design process is the focus of this research.
A simulation model applied to climatization plant performance analysis in presence of thermal storage | 1995 | English
A comprehensive simulation model, based on the TRNSYS program, for the evaluation of thermalstorage system behaviour in building climatization is presented here.
A simplified coupled model for thermal behaviour and air flows simulation in urban spaces | 1995 | English
The studies presented here aim at defining and setting out a calculation code allowing the prediction of outdoor ambient thermal quality.
