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

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
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
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
A coarse-grid zonal model of room air convection is formulated and written with the SPARK object- oriented simulation environment.
E. Wurtz, M. Musy, J.M. Nataf
Building dynamic simulation has been available to building design engineers for some time.
K.H. Beattie and I.C. Ward
This  paper  referrer  to  the  existence  of  the variety modes and the 'chaos' in building ventilation system, and provides some instances of such varieties and the chaos in forced ceiling chamber smoke exhaust system in building fire. The numer

Construction    and    operation    of    buildings    is internationally a major cause of resource depletion and environmental pollution.
Robert Ries, Ardeshir Mahdavi
In this report, recently developed computer program named TB3D/FDM(Thermal Bridge Computa- tion by 2- or 3-Dimensional Finite Difference Method) is introduced.
Hideyo Nimiya, Hiroshi Akasaka, Satoshi Obara and Kiyoshi Itami
This paper presents the Umidus program which has been developed to model coupled heat and moisture transfer within porous media, in order to analyze higrothemal performance of building  elements when subjected to any kind of climate conditions. Bo

This paper is focused on the evaluation of simulation system using the experiment result and the con- figuration of peri-counter which is the part of counter unit setting at bottom of window side with heat panel to avoid the influence of cold draf

The  traditional  methods  for  the  evaluation  of  the thermal performance of buildings are appropriate to winter conditions and are often used in standards that regulate energy consumption.
Maria Akutsu and Fúlvio Vittorino
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
The paper outlines a two-year research program where Radiance was used in the conversion of Empress Place, a national monument in Singapore, into an Asian Civilisation Museum.
Edward Ng, Khee-Poh Lam, Wei Wu, Takehiko Nagakura
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
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
The numerical model for the analysis of the combined convective-conductive heat transfer in the building components has been developed.
Zbynek Svoboda
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.

Most of the Brazilian population is concentrated in the shore region in cities like Rio de Janeiro.
Alberto Hernandez Neto, Arlindo Tribess, Fúlvio Vittorino, Maria Akutsu
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
