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
Little work has been done on the closed loop response of refrigeration plant using the new chlorine-free refrigerants.
C P Underwood
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
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.
ISHINO Hisaya
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
Classical building simulators are typically based on global systems of differential equations that model the physical reality and are numerically solved at runtime. In this paper we propose a new approach.
Gerhard Zimmermann
Building geometry is essential to any simulation of building performance. This paper examines from the users’ point of view the importing of building geometry into simulation of energy performance.
Vladimir Bazjanac
The aim of this work is to present a computer application that was developed to be a user-friendly interface that simplifies the manipulation of weather data files.
Eduardo Breviglieri Pereira de Castro
The paper discusses the technical features of the physically based computer simulation/visualization techniques for architectural lighting research. Potentials and limitations are evaluated in terms of input, algorithms, output, and analysis tools
Mehlika N. Inanici
Physical and computational simulations have been combined within a unique framework for the aim of establishing a methodology for micro-level building thermal analysis.
Ruchi Choudhary and Ali Malkawi
