In the paper, based on MS Thesis by Richtr, 2000, the authors describe CFD modeling of a computer room with regard to thermal comfort of workers.
Jan Richtr, Jaroslav Katolicky, Miroslav Jicha
Energy  savings  from  the  use  of  daylighting  in commercial buildings are realized through implementation of photoelectric lighting controls that dim electric lights when sufficient daylight is available to provide  adequate workplane illumina
Charles Ehrlich, Konstantinos Papamichael, Judy Lai, Kenneth Revzan
When modernist architecture in the tropics started in the 30´of the 20th century, air-conditioning systems and special glazing were not yet available.
Michael Laar
Heat stress associated with extreme temperatures and relative humidity has been shown to reduce the productivity  from  swine  facilities,  especially breeding facilities.
R. S. Gates, J. M. Zulovich, L. Turner, J. Wurm, M. F. G. Johnson
The HVAC BESTEST has been developed within the framework of the IEA (International Energy Agency) It is a comparative test method developed for estimating the ability of whole building simulation programs to model the performance of unitary space
Sabine Hayez, Christophe Dalibart, Gilles Guyon, Jean Feburie
Most photovoltaic (PV) facades are built as curtain facades in front of thermally insulated buildings with air ducts in between.
Stefan Krauter, Mohammed J. Salhi, Sandra Schroer, Rolf Hanitsch
This   work   regards   the   development   and   the validation a simplified model for building cooling energy requirement.
M. Beccali, L. Mazzarella, M. Motta
The  paper  presents  a  dynamic  approach  of  the validation process of existing building simulation model.
Roberge Marc-Antoine, Kajl Stanislaw, Bellemare René
Windows  allow  daylight  to  enter a  space  but  they also allow for the transfer of heat gains and losses that affect the energy consumption of a building.
Enedir Ghisi and John Tinker
A  structured,  generalized  modeling  and  simulation software is described that enables development and analysis of control algorithms and systems and pre- diction of thermal performance and energy use in buildings.
Dipak J. Shah
The Energy and Environmental Prediction (EEP) model is an environmental auditing and decision making tool for cities, to be used by planners and others in pursuit of sustainable development.
P J Jones, S Lannon, and J Williams
This  paper  presents  the  multiple-view performance assessment of an existing office building undertaken with an integrated application.
Citherlet S.
This   article   presents   the   first   application   of   the Sim_Zonal software, a tool for evaluating indoor temperature and air flow distributions for residential and office buildings.
Francis Déqué, Françoise Evin, Etienne Wurtz and Laurent Mora
To  meet  the  requirements  of  building  owners  and users in environmental issues, life cycle assessment (LCA) has become an important method to monitor the ecological perspective during design and decision making processes.
Tuomas Laine, Erja Reinikainen, Kimmo Liljeström and Antti Karola
This  paper  describes  an  empirical  study  that  was conducted to determine whether and to what extent subjective evaluation of lighting in architectural spaces can be reproduced using computationally rendered images of such spaces.
Hesham Eissa and Ardeshir Mahdavi
CEN  TC247  has  prepared  draft  standards  for  main types of room controllers.
R. Lahrech, P.Gruber., P. Riederer, P. Tessier, J. C. Visier
A flow responsive algorithm was devised and implemented within the ESP-r simulation program to advance the modelling of internal surface convection.
Ian Beausoleil-Morrison
The measured thermal behavior of a massive building that uses passive techniques for indoor air conditioning is presented. The building thermal transient behavior was simulated with SIMEDIF code.
Silvana Flores Larsen, Alejandro Hernández, Graciela Lesino and Nahuel Salvo
Advances  in  psychoacoustics  through  the  years, have made it possible to evaluate the acoustical quality of a room, based on several numerical parameters that have been developed.
