Use of 'Comfie' computer simulation tool for evaluation of thermal performance in housing units | 2001 | English
The design of buildings is a multi-criterion optimization problem, there always being a trade- off to be made between capital expenditure, operating cost, and occupant thermal comfort.
This paper describes novel high-performance visualization techniques for reviewing time dependent data common to building simulation.
Simulation of the wind in hot and humid climates cities: evaluation of the natural ventilation potencial of the housing in urban blocks | 2001 | English
This work is a multidisciplinary approach of natural ventilation in hot and humid climates. Our aim is the control of thermal comfort in tropical towns. We evaluate the natural ventilation potential of different shapes of the dense housing.
Thermal performance simulation and the urban microclimate: measurements and prediction | 2001 | English
Computer models used to predict building heating and cooling energy and occupant thermal comfort at present rely on climate data collected at a remote meteorological station.
The adaptive couling of computacional fluid dynamics with whole-building thermal simulation | 2001 | English
A adaptive controller was devised and implemented within the ESP-r simulation program to support the conflation of CFD with dynamic whole-building thermal simulation.
This paper refers to the existence of the variety modes and 'Chaos' in building natural ventilation or smoke venting, systems, and provides the some computational instances by means of the network model.
In low energy dwellings the ventilation heat losses are significant. Reducing this heat losses can be done by introducing demand controlled ventilation i.e.
The use of multiple building performance simulation tools during the design process: a case study in Singapore | 2001 | English
