Use of energy performance simulation for operation cost distribution in multipurpose conventional centre | 2001 | English
The influence of different courtyard configurations on natural ventilation through low-rise buildings | 2001 | English
Natural ventilation represents an important design strategy for school buildings in warm humid regions. It is an efficient way to improve students’ thermal comfort and productivity by natural means.
In a larger research program on ‘cost versus value evaluations in the early design stages of technical buildings’, a study and software implementation has been made to simulate HVAC expertise using an Integrated Early Design Environment.
This paper reports on an ongoing research project aiming at prediction of the sound insulation proper- ties of a specific type of facade panel by means of computational tools and experiments.
Formal independent testing has been an integral component in the development of EnergyPlus, a new building energy simulation program. Testing to date has included analytical, comparative, sensitivity, range, and empirical tests.
This paper deals with the development and the testing of a simulation algorithm for the temperature behaviour and the flow characteristics of double façades.
The simultaneous optimization of building fabric construction: HVAC system size, and the plant control strategy | 2001 | English
The simultaneous optimization of building’s fabric construction, the size of heating, ventilating and air conditioning (HVAC) system, and the HVAC system supervisory control strategy, would auto- matically account for the thermal coupling between
Urban climate and its influence on energy consumption a case study in two brazilian cities | 2001 | English
Two prototype office buildings with low internal gains were simulated using DOE2 software to evaluate its energy consumption in different urban microclimates.
We present the practical application of two models SustArc (Capeluto and Shaviv 1997, 1999) and FLUENT 5.0.2 (1999) to the design of a new business district in Tel Aviv incorporating solar and wind rights.
Using lighting simulation to assess the performance of and indirect office lighting systems in dynamic workplaces | 2001 | English
Despite discussions of the universal workstation, there is increasing workplace dynamics in organizations. These dynamics include space configuration changes, changes in occupant density, and increasing equipment density.
For users and developers of energy simulation software tools, knowledge of which inputs have a signif- icant impact on the simulation results is very impor- tant, as this will dictate which areas of the building justify additional development and
We have developed software applications that design HVAC systems (that is, select, locate, and size components and their interconnections) given building descriptions, user preferences, and built-in rules.
Modeling the link between built environment and urban climate: towards simplified indicators of the city environment | 2001 | English
The important variation of the urban morphology has direct effects on the disparity of the outdoor climates, as well as indoor climates.
In this study, the Typical Weather Year data for the simulations of buildings were developed following the previous study. Using these data, the annual heating and cooling loads of model houses in 69 Chinese cities were calculated.
Knowledge management for comfortableness and the energy saving of building management | 2001 | English
This paper proposed two simulation methods of the “Cooperation control “. The Cooperation control is defined the optimize connecting control in the HVAC, artificial lighting and day-lighting combined with venetian blind control. The first method
Solar radiation induced convection occurs quite often in glazed spaces. In spite of that the impact of solar radiation to airflow inside rooms and buildings is not usually taken into account when airflow patterns are studied.
SIMULA_3D : a multi_zone unsteady thermal simulation tool based on a 3D modelling of the building | 2001 | English
Generally, geometrical data of the building do not constitute an usual detailed input for the thermal simulations, but nevertheless they become necessary as soon as accuracy is needed to take into account incoming solar energy, to measure the radi
The potential offered by computer simulation is often not realized: Due to the interaction of system vari- ables, simulation users rarely know how to choose input parameter settings that lead to optimal perfor- mance of a given system.
This paper describes the development and validation of a simulation model for Advanced Integrated Mechanical Systems (AIMS) destined for residential applications.
