In calculating the heat flows around the floor plenum of underfloor air distribution system, the convective heat transfer coefficient is an influential factor, but it is not clearly known which value should be taken.
Hisashi Fujita and Sadao Tomiie
Solar energy and wind energy are one of renewable energies, and they are inexhaustible energy source which are available anywhere.
Masafumi Terawaki and Isamu Suzuki
The numerical model for the analysis of the combined convective-conductive heat transfer in the building components has been developed.
Zbynek Svoboda
If an insulated and airtight house is cooled by passive ventilation using buoyant convection, the indoor air temperature can be kept lower than the outdoor air temperature, but there is a tendency for the indoor humidity to remain at a high level.
Shigeki Nishizawa, Masamichi Enai and Takeo Yuasa
Most of the Brazilian population is concentrated in the shore region in cities like Rio de Janeiro.

There  are  two  kind  of  supply  fan  rotation  speed control methods, one is the static pressure control method, the other is the float pressure control method. Simulation shows that they have different working point along the whole year.
Xue Zhifeng,Chen Feng and Jiang Yi
An evaluation method for life cycle energy (LCE) and CO2 (LCCO2) of houses by the  system dynamics (SD), a method for understanding how all the objects in a system interact with one another, was presented.
Hiroshi Matsumoto
Based  on  the  thermal  and  airflow  network  model with simple but perfect generic formulations and stable solving methods, a computer program NETS for the practical simulation of coupled building heat, gas and air transfer system has been deve

This  paper  examines  the  process  by  which  the kitchen exhaust from a dwelling unit diffuses throughout the other dwelling units in a seven-story housing facility.
Shinnichiro Nagano
Up to now, within the framework of validation of the global building energy simulation software programme CLIM2000, we have not focused on analytical verification.
Gilles Guyon, Stéphane Moinard, Nacim Ramdani
THERM  2.0  is  a  state-of-the-art  software  program, available without cost,  that uses the finite-element method to model steady-state, two-dimensional heat- transfer problems.
Charlie Huizenga, Dariush Arasteh, Elizabeth Finlayson, Robin Mitchell, Brent Griffith, Dragan Curcija
We present in this paper the essential aspects of the S2 system. This is the  internet realization of SEMPER: An active, multi-domain, space-based, object oriented design environment for integrated building performance modeling.
Ardeshir Mahdavi, Mustafa Emre Ilal, Paul Mathew, Robert Ries, Georg Suter, Rohini Brahme
In recent years there have been a number of research and development initiatives directed at integrated energy generation systems which can meet the energy requirements of a building substantially or even completely on-site.
Paul Mathew, Volker Hartkopf, Ardeshir Mahdavi
The  successful  application of  moisture  simulation models to building envelopes requires accurate values of material transport properties. Unfortunately, although the presently-available database is reasonably voluminous, much of the informatio

Nowadays   architects   commonly   use   the   ‘coupled space concept’. Examples are mezzanines, half-open office spaces and exhibition rooms.
Marinus van der Voorden, Lau Nijs, Gerrit Vermeir and Gert Jansens
Located in an extreme arid natural environment, the city of Mexicali has confronted maximum temperatures of 54C during summertime.
Delia Chan, Ramona Romero, Gonzalo Bojorquez and Anibal Luna
Recent developments in photovoltaic components, small-scale combined heat and power systems and ducted wind turbines have opened up the possibility for an embedded generation approach to building design.
Kelly N J, Clarke J A
Building dynamic simulation has been available to building design engineers for some time.
K.H. Beattie and I.C. Ward
A coarse-grid zonal model of room air convection is formulated and written with the SPARK object- oriented simulation environment.
