Building and HVAC system design can significantly improve if numerical optimization is used. However, if a cost function that is smooth in the design parameter is evaluated by a building energy simulation program, it usually becomes replaced with
Michael Wetter and Jonathan Wright
The Energy Resources Center at the University of Illinois at Chicago conducted an energy assessment of the John G. Shedd Aquarium and Oceanarium to increase the energy efficiency of the facility, while decreasing the operating costs.
Christine E. Walker and Michael J. Chimack
Daylight design for “extremely” obstructed urban environment is a relatively uncharted area of study. No city in the world has an urban density as high as Hong Kong. Designing daylight in the territory is a critical and important study.
Ng Edward
This paper describes a relatively simple software tool that has been developed to perform annual hour-by hour energy simulation of a building.
Duo Randriamiarinjatovo, Michel A. Bernier
The necessity of focus on more large integration of passive concepts for indoor climate conditioning is today a reality.
Yasmine Mansouri, Francis Allard, Marjorie Musy
For many buildings, continuous operation of the air conditioning system is not necessary for achieving thermal comfort during the occupied periods. Depending on the building's thermal and operational characteristics the air conditioning system may

This paper describes four simulation models, which reproduce energy and temperature measurements of occupied buildings very well.
U.D.J. Gieseler, F.D. Heidt, W. Bier
The  paper  describes  the  use  of  the  theory  of tolerances in thermal network models that are built as electric circuits. A principle of the method and main equations are given.
Dalibor Vytlacil
Simulation exercises covering long periods (e.g.. annual simulations) can produce large quantities of data.
Christoph Morbitzer, Paul Strachan and Catherine Simpson
This paper is part of continuing research aimed at exploring the relationship between the amount of solar radiation received by a curved roof and its geometrical configurations.
Ahmed A. B. Elseragy, Mohamed B. Gadi
This   paper   presents   a   district   energy   system simulation model in which the energy flow of a district is modeled as the sum of total energy flow in each building.
Yohei Yamaguchi, Yoshiyuki Shimoda, and Minoru Mizuno
Validation is the key when attempting to instill confidence in a building simulation tool.
Julia Purdy and Ian Beausoleil-Morrison
In 1998, MoD commissioned ANSYS CFX to develop a numerical procedure, based on Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), aimed at providing a practical tool which can be integrated into design processes in order to optimise lowpressure fine water spray
Yehuda Sinai, Phil Stopford, Mike Edwards, and Steve Watkins
DElight  is  a  simulation  engine  for  daylight  and electric lighting system analysis in buildings.
Robert J. Hitchcock and William L. Carroll
Agency Annex 35 “Hybrid Ventilation in New and Retrofitted Office Buildings”.
Florence Cron and Christian Inard
Building design and operation processes can be supported by many kinds of models, from traditional architectural scale models to computer-generated virtual buildings.
Ardeshir Mahdavi
The computer software AUSSSM TOOL, originating from the methodology of the revised-Architectural- Urban-Soil-Simultaneous Simulation Model (revised-AUSSSM), was developed by adopting the Graphical User Interface (GUI) features to support users, wh
