Thermal storage with concrete slab of pressurized plenum in underfloor air distribution system | 1999 | English
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.
The simulation of photovoltaic power generation and wind power generation on the hydrid electricity supply system of a building | 1999 | English
Solar energy and wind energy are one of renewable energies, and they are inexhaustible energy source which are available anywhere.
The analysis of the convenctive-conductive heat transfer in the building constructions | 1999 | English
The numerical model for the analysis of the combined convective-conductive heat transfer in the building components has been developed.
Thermal enviroment of the house with a moisture-absorbent typt dehumidifier in summer | 1999 | English
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.
The effects of indoor conditions on the reduction of energy consumption in commercial buildings in rio de Janeiro | 1999 | English
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.
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.
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
The diffusion process of kitchen gas exhausted to the outdoor air surrounding a multi-unit housing facility | 1999 | English
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.
Up to now, within the framework of validation of the global building energy simulation software programme CLIM2000, we have not focused on analytical verification.
THERM 2.0: a building component model for seady-satate two-dimensional heat transfer | 1999 | English
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.
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.
Towards the building as power plant: computacional analysis of building enrgy self-sustenance | 1999 | English
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.
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
The applicability of ray-tracing based simulation tools to predict sound pressure levels and reverberation times in 'coupled spaces' | 1999 | English
Nowadays architects commonly use the ‘coupled space concept’. Examples are mezzanines, half-open office spaces and exhibition rooms.
Thermal evaluation of strategies for an adequate housing in arid zones and their impact on energy saving | 1999 | English
Located in an extreme arid natural environment, the city of Mexicali has confronted maximum temperatures of 54C during summertime.
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.
Building dynamic simulation has been available to building design engineers for some time.
Thermal comfort and pollutant transport prediction in the object oriented environment spark | 1999 | English
A coarse-grid zonal model of room air convection is formulated and written with the SPARK object- oriented simulation environment.
