BSPRO COM-SERVER: interoperability between software tools using industry foundation classes | 2001 | English
The continuing development of the Industry Foundation Classes (IFC) standard by the International Alliance for Interoperability (IAI) creates new possibilities for achieving interoperability for design software through the use of a common object m
In addition to the fact that the serviceability of building constructions used as exhibition halls has to be ensured, the climate stability of the whole structure has to be increased.
Determining baseling energy consumption and peak cooling loads of a 107-year-old science museum using DOE 2.1E | 2001 | English
The Energy Resources Center (ERC) at the University of Illinois at Chicago conducted an energy assessment to determine the peak cooling loads of the Museum of Science and Industry (MSI) as part of MSI’s Long Term Development Plan.
Computer simulation Of measurement methods can give in-depth information on the possible effect of a wide variety of parameters on measurement results.
Technological advances in real-time data collection,data transfer and ever-increasing computational power are bringing simulation assisted control and on-line fault detection and diagnosis closer to reality than was imagined when Building Energy M
During the past few years, our research team has developed techniques to solve problems associated with designing a collaborative evaluation performance tool environment.
This paper will describe a simulation experiment designed to benchmark the use of separate electric driven chiller plants for a nominal 100,000 sq.
This paper addresses the utility and the difficulties to predict the actual energy consumption of existing buildings, that can be useful to calculate true energy conservation potential taking into account the real usage of the building.
Over the last fifteen years, there have been a number of UK initiatives which facilitated practitioner access to simulation programs (e.g. Clarke and Maver 1991; McElroy et al 1997).
A new building energy simulation program developed under support from the US government was released in April 2001.
Computational support for the generation and exploration of the design-performance space | 2001 | English
While recent advances in computational building performance modeling have been remarkable, their impact on building design community has been limited. In this paper we focus on one possible contributing factor, i.e., insufficient support for navig
Development of virtual simulation system for housing environment using rapid prototype method | 2001 | English
This report introduces the rapid prototype method newly developed to design individual housings.
Architectural constraints in a generative design system: interpreting energy consumption levels | 2001 | English
This paper investigates the possibility of encoding architectural design intentions into a generative design system, using as a test bed the School of Architecture at Oporto [Portugal], designed by Álvaro Siza.
This paper is focused on a mathematical model applied to both building thermal analysis and control systems design. A lumped approach is used to model the room air temperature and a multi-layer model for the building envelope.
There are two purposes for this paper, one is that the calculation method, which took sunlight into consideration using All Sky Model, is shown, and another is executing simulations by this method.
The combinations of parameter effecting optimum energy consumption and good open view for designing side-window of office buildings are proposed.
COMIS V3.1 simulation environment for multizone air flow and pollutant transport modelling | 2001 | English
COMIS simulates multizone airflow and pollutant transport. It has been developed in an international context at LBNL and within IEA Annex 23.
Development of a collaborative design tool for structural analysis in an immersive virtual environment | 2001 | English
This paper contains the results of an on-going collaborative research effort by the departments of Architecture and Computer Science of Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University, U.S.A., to develop a computer visualization application fo
