Even at the beginning of the concept and planning phase for low energy buildings co-operation between architect and different engineers is, mandatory.
Schuler Matthias
The Neutral Model Format for building simulation was proposed in 1989 as a means for documentation and exchange of models.
Kolsaker Kjell, Sahlin Per; Bring Axel
IDA is a flexible, object-oriented, environment for simulation of buildings and their subsystems. The key features of the system are summarized. Available IDA literature is listed.

An Anglo-French collaborative project is presently under way with the dual purpose : a) to collect high quality data sets for the empirical validation of thermal simulation programs of buildings and b) to develop and test advanced data analysis te
Dalicieux P., Candau Y., Bloomfield D., Delille S.
Within the framework of an Anglo-French validation project funded by EDF and the BRE, a building model has been tested using an error analysis method. The first step enabled the identification of the different discrepancy sources.
Tabary L., Ramdani N.
 TRNSYS is a modular transient system simulation program that has been commercially available since  1975. The primary use of TRNSYS is to model  thermal energy systems.
Blair N. J., Mitchell J. W., Beckman W. A.
The EPRI LightPAD program is a simple but powerful lighting audit and analysis tool for assessing installed lighting systems and proposing cost-effective, energy-efficient retrofit alternatives.
Hart G. Kimball, Johnson Karl. F., Mcdougall Tom
This paper presents some results of the development and application work of the Building Equipmentsection at EMPA related to integrated building and HVAC simulation environments.
Zweifel G., Dorer V., Koschenz M., Weber A.
The potential of the different passive cooling strategies for popular residential buildings in Israel is evaluated using a simplified simulation program.
Hassid S.
The current models of boilers and furnaces which are used in HVAC system simulation programs are primarily concerned with calculating the heat output of the device and its fuel consumption.
Hanby V. I., Li G.
Data for convective heat transfer coefficients (CHTC's) published in the literature tend to be for anisolated heated vertical plate, with few data based on measurements at room surfaces Accurate values of CHTC's for internal room surfaces are need
Hatton A., Awbi H. B.
Examples on application of system simulation in preplanning, sizing and comissioning of HVAC systems are briefly given and typical obstacles for a more broader utilization in engineering offices are introduced.
Bauer Michael, Madjidi Madjid
Conventional control schernes for air condítioning systems are in lack of the capabilities to adapt to a changing enviroranent and to optimize against given criteria.
Lam H. N.
Comprehensive studies of the energy saving potential for buildings will often not be performed in a design phase - especially not for renovation projects.
Jensen Soren Ostergaard, Wittchen Kim B., Thomsen Kirsten Engelund
DOE-2 is arguably the most complex and comprehensive building energy simulation program available. However, not even DOE-2 addresses ali situations encountered in commercial office buildings.
Steele Tim
"Bioclimatic Architecture" offers adequate inner thermal comfort for human use, while, responding to the climatic outdoor conditions with reduced heating and cooling loads. This demand. asks for prediction.
Tuschinski Melita G.
A methodology is presented for creating models which are suitable for use in fault detection and diagnosis schernes in applications where it is impossible to obtain data from the actual plant.
Dexter Arthur L., Benouarets Mourad
Dealing with issues of acquiring and accessing design knowledge in the conceptual stage of the design process is the focus of this research.
