In the standard design process of a building, total building simulation using building simulation software is encouraged to be incorporated into the design process as early as possible.
Michael J. Chimack and Christine E. Walker
The present paper addresses and fosters the factors that  affect airflow movement and energy efficiencies in the surgical operating theatres.
Ramiz Kameel, Essam E. Khalil
Hourly energy simulation  was used in combination with a life cycle assessment framework to model the environmental effects of energy consumption in buildings.
Ayat Osman and Robert Ries
It is necessary for fire safety that in case of a flash-over situation, the windows in the outer skin would break very fast and before the windows in the inner façade would break, so that the model of Law is valid in which case the NEN 6068  could
Erik den Tonkelaar
The    performances  of  air  conditioning  equipments, like heat pumps, chillers or air conditioners, derive not only from the operative thermal levels, but also from the building requirement trend which normally involves frequent reductions of t
Ernesto Bettanini, Alessio Gastaldello, Luigi Schibuola
Consoclim is a building energy simulation software package which aims to simplify the input data. The building is modelled by only one capacity and five resistances.
S. Roujol, E. Fleury, D. Marchio, J.R. Millet, P. Stabat
Whole building simulation may play a key role in the optimization and assessment of the market potential of new building components.
Vítor Leal, Eduardo Maldonado, Evyatar Erell and Yair Etzion
This paper presents "Scythe and Sew", a software environment for analyzing lighting simulation data. It provides a spreadsheet like infrastructure for manipulating high-dimensional simulation results.
Osbert Feng, Quy Nguyen, Daniel Glaser, John Canny, Ellen Yi-Luen Do
This paper presents a simulation study employed for the optimization of the building envelope for a new university building located in Montreal (latitude 450N).
Athanassios Tzempelikos and Andreas K. Athienitis
Occupant responsive optimal control is developed for so called smart façade systems.
Cheol-Soo Park, Godfried Augenbroe, Nader Sadegh, Mate Thitisawat, Tahar Messadi
The evaluation of shading devices is generally carried out using a sequence of shadow pattern images showing the progression of solar penetration for particular times of the day or year.
J. Mardaljevic
This  article  presents  a  one-dimensional  model  of spray vaporization that can be easily used in thermal performance simulations of buildings.
Antonio César S. Baptista da Silva, José A. Bellini da Cunha Neto, Roberto Lamberts
The validation and development of turbulence models are still important issues  related to Computa- tional Fluid Dynamics for ventilation purposes. The present work continues the work initiated by (Voigt, 2002).
Lars Køllgaard Voigt, Jens Nørkær Sørensen, Jakob Martin Pedersen and Morten Brøns
A   two-level   analysis   was   used   to   study   the economic potential of implementing Building Cooling, Heating and Power (BCHP) technologies in the U.S.
Marek Czachorski, Jaroslav Wurm
A web-based, non-expert daylighting analysis tool has been developed to support daylighting-related design decisions in peripheral private offices during an early design stage.
C. F. Reinhart, M. Morrison
In this work two numerical models are presented. The first one simulates the buildings thermal response and evaluates the internal air quality, while the second one simulates the human and clothing thermal systems and calculates the thermal comfor

Experimental studies in building energy usage and environmental analysis are very time consuming and expensive, and require sophisticated sensors and instrumentation techniques.
Pedro Dinis Gaspar, Rui F. Barroca and R.A. Pitarma
The   sky   view   factor   indicates   the   relationship between the visible area of the sky and the area covered by urban structures.
Léa C.L.Souza, Daniel S. Rodrigues, José F.G. Mendes
Four areas in Texas have been designated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) as non-attainment areas because ozone levels exceed the NAAQS1  maximum allowable limits.
Jeff S. Haberl, Piljae Im, Charles Culp, Bahman Yazdani, Tom Fitzpatrick, Dan Turner, Malcolm Verdict
A computer-model is used to simulate the evacuation of the occupants in a building.
