This  paper  presents  the  multiple-view performance assessment of an existing office building undertaken with an integrated application.
Citherlet S.
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
This paper presents the development of a zone model adapted to the study of the influence of the sensor position in building thermal control. The temperature measured by the sensor of a room temperature controller depends on its position in the zo

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.
Marcio A. Gomes and Samir N. Y. Gerges
Windows strongly influence the energy performances of buildings, especially in the new hugely glazed constructions.
Augusto Maccari and Michele Zinzi
An optimal combination of the characteristics of an air conditioning system and the control strategy is necessary to minimize costs and the energy demand.
Clemens Felsmann and Gottfried Knabe
With increasing demands for electric power in large commercial buildings the problem of magnetic interference to sensitive equipment has increased. However, low-frequency (ELF) electromagnetic interference is not generally addressed in the design 
John Burnett and Yaping Du
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.

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.
Charles S. Barnaby, Mikhail Shnitman, and William A. Wright
The  important  variation  of  the  urban  morphology has direct effects on the disparity of the outdoor climates, as well as indoor climates.
Luc Adolphe
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

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.
Pavel Charvat, Michal Jaros, Jaroslav Katolicky and Petr Svorcik
The application of a passive cooling system to animal housing was evaluated.
J.J. Correia da Silva, Ana Maria Silva and Eduardo de Oliveira Fernandes
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.
Michael Wetter
This paper describes the development and validation of a simulation model for Advanced Integrated Mechanical Systems (AIMS) destined for residential applications.
