This work presents the program SIMEDIF, a code conceived for the design and simulation of the thermal transient behavior of buildings, entirely developed at INENCO.
Silvana Flores Larseni and Graciela Lesinoii
This work wants to provide the planners with a database of the typical mediterranean building structures.
Giorgio Beccali, Maurizio Cellura, Valerio Lo Brano
The paper uses the latest state of the art dynamic simulation software to analyse and present design information for building design engineers on current design questions in both Dublin and Boston.
V. Murray, C.J. O'Flynn
Hong Kong is the most densely populated city in the world. The Building Regulations of Hong Kong pre- scribe a minimum distance between buildings for light- ing and ventilation.
Ng Eduardo
This paper presents the requirements of the building representation to supports the holistic performance assessment of building performance into a single application.
Citherlet S., Hand J.
This study aims to develop a simplified estimation method of the thermal design load and space radiant environment in order to achieve adequate and economical HVAC equipment sizing and confirmation of thermal comfort.
Kimiko Kohri
New calculation procedures for calculating conduction heat transfer for foundations are described. These procedures are first validated and then implemented within EnergyPlus source code (beta version 5.0).
Moncef Krarti, Pirawas Chuangchid, and Pyeongchan Ihm
Little work has been done on the closed loop response of refrigeration plant using the new chlorine-free refrigerants.
C P Underwood
This study aims to develop a simplified estimation method of the thermal design load and space radiant environment in order to achieve adequate and economical HVAC equipment sizing and confirmation of thermal comfort.

The paper describes new improvements in SOLENE, a set of numerical models for the simulation of natural light in both the urban morphologies and the indoor architectural spaces which is developed in our laboratory.
Francis Miguet and Dominique Groleau
