Radiant heating and cooling, including building component embedded systems, have become a common heating and/or cooling technology in the recent few years.
Gerhard Zweifel, Matthias Achermann
Computational  Fluid  Dynamics  (CFD)  software  is increasingly being used to predict the effects of wind on buildings and on the people in and around them.
Garry Palmer, Bernardo Vazquez, Graham Knapp, Nigel Wright
A study by Reinhart and Herkel showed term predictions of daylight availability in architectural spaces should take the conditions  of all individual time steps into account.
Benjamin Geebelen and Herman Neuckermans
Skylights   can   offer   useful   benefits  in  reducing building energy consumption and improving building occupants satisfaction.
A. Laouadi, A. Galasiu, M. Atif, A. Haqqani
In tropical humid climate, thermal environment can be controlled using natural ventilation.
Jachet - Fleurence I. and Woloszyn P.
HVAC systems that supply both space heating and domestic hot water are becoming more popular in residential buildings In North America.
Ian Beausoleil-Morrison, Kamel Haddad
The international building physics toolbox (IBPT) is a software library specially constructed for HAM system analysis in building physics.
Peter Weitzmann, Angela Sasic Kalagasidis, Toke Rammer Nielsen, Ruut Peuhkuri and Carl-Eric Hagentoft
The hygrothermal behavior of a building component exposed to weather is an important aspect of the overall performance of a building.
Andreas Holm, Hartwig M. Kuenzel and Klaus Sedlbauer
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
This paper describes the application of a building simulation program to construct a decision-support tool for use by policy makers addressing the needs of the Scottish  domestic housing  sector.
Clarke J. A., Johnstone C. M., Lever M., McElroy L. B., McKenzie F., Peart G., Prazeres L. and Strachan P. A.
Recent  advances  in  mathematical  models,  computer processors and OOP compilers have been motivating the development of the Domus program for whole-building hygrothermal simulation.
Nathan Mendes, Ricardo C.L.F. Oliveira and Gerson Henrique dos Santos
This paper documents work that follows on from a previous study [Morbitzer et al 2001] on the implementation of a simulation-tool into an architectural practice at outline design stage.
Dan Hobbs, Christoph Morbitzer, Brian Spires, Paul Strachan, Jim Webster
With the current enhancements moisture engineering analysis of building envelope structures becomes a critical design element.
Mikael Salonvaara, Tuomo Ojanen, Achilles Karagiozis
A  new parameter   e (0≤e≤1),  called  coefficient  of performance, is introduced, whose value quantifies the suitability of the distribution of resistive and capacitive layers in a multi-layer wall, within problems concerning thermal building-pla
Mario Ciampi, Francesco Leccese and Giuseppe Tuoni
A good tuning between building and installations plays a major role in achieving energy savings and a high quality of the indoor climate.
Laure Itard
A module for ice-based thermal energy storage (TES) systems has been developed and integrated within EnergyPlus.
Pyeongchan Ihm, Moncef Krarti, Gregor Henze
DIAL-Europe  is  the  final  product  of  a  three  year European project that ended in March 2003.
Ellie de Groot, Laurens Zonneveldt, Bernard Paule
The  most  dominant  moisture-related  problem  in building materials is probably mold growth. It occurs as a result of relatively high moisture concentrations.
Hyeun Jun Moon, Godfried Augenbroe
This paper is about new features which where added to TRNSYS15 (Beckman, 2000) to improve its capabilities. For system simulations with TRNSYS15 now 6 new component libraries are available.
T. Welfonder, M. Hiller, S. Holst, A. Knirsch
This   article   presents   a   simulation   method   for predicting the long-term energy performance of a central air-conditioning system serving interior zones of buildings with similar daily cooling load profiles.
