COMIS simulates multizone airflow and pollutant transport. It has been developed in an international context at LBNL and within IEA Annex 23.
Viktor Dorer, Anne Haas, Werner Keilholz, Roger Pelletret, Andreas Weber
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

This article introduces building simulation in conjunction with a HVAC system, especially a split system, considering thermal and moisture behaviors of the perimeter walls.
Gottfried Knabe and Huu-Thoi Le
The use of daylighting in buildings can be an improvement when trying to enhance the environmental quality and the energy efficiency of them.
Aldo Fanchiotti, Claudia Amorim
We describe a mathematical model applied to analysis of hygrothermal behavior of buildings.
Nathan Mendes and Gerson H. dos Santos
Estimating  relative  humidity  from  outdoor  air temperature and humidity, and indoor air temperature is a means to assess thermal comfort conditions when indoor relative humidity is not available.
Eduardo L. Krüger
CODYBA is a software addressed to designers, teachers and research organisms. This software determines the energetic fluxes of a building zone. The basic data are the zones geometry and constitution.
Jean NOEL, Jean-Jacques ROUX, Paulo Smith SCHNEIDER
Future cities are likely to be characterised by a greater level of renewable energy systems deployment.
Born F J, Clarke J A and Johnstone C M
It is becoming a popular practice for architects and  HVAC engineers to simulate airflows in and around buildings by Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD)  methods in order to predict indoor and outdoor environments.
Charles R. Broderick, III and Qingyan Chen
The lack of widespread use of building environmental design decision support tools in architecture appears to be because the tools are often too simplistic.
Michael Donn, Robert Amor and David Harrison
In this paper we report the findings of a survey conducted to evaluate the energy-conservation performance of an office building some time after construction, and present the results of a simulation that was performed to identify possible improvem

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.

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.
