Convective  air  circulation  occurring  through  wall layers is frequently observed in building envelopes.
Chebil S., Galanis N., Zmeureanu R
The  design  for  the  new Federal  Building  for  San Francisco includes an office tower that is to be naturally ventilated.
Carrilho da Graça G., Linden P. F., Mcconahey E., Haves P.
The objective of this paper is to present an analysis of the weather data contained in a Typical Meteorological Year (TMY) and observe the effect of these data on the simulated load of a typical building.
George Florides, Soteris Kalogirou, Kyriacos Theophilou and Evangelos Evangelou
This paper describes a new software application for analysing climate data. It is argued that the produced graphical charts can be useful concept stage design tools in their own right.
Darren Robinson
A set of geometry translation tools and capabilities have been developed to increase base efficiencies in the simulation of both the internal and external environment of buildings.
Michael Still
This paper presents the concept of a tool adapted to zonal models and devoted to the simulation of thermal dynamic phenomena in buildings.
Sihem Guernouti, Marjorie Musy and Gérard Hégron
This   paper   summarizes   a   PhD project   that   is currently under completion at Delft University of Technology, Faculty of Architecture, Building Physics Group.
P. de Wilde and M. van der Voorden
The objective of this paper is to model the double skin façade in order to determine the thermal and flow performance and to find out how the façade should be combined with the HVAC system inside of the building.
Wojtek Stec, Dolf van Paassen
A simulation methodology has been created for establishing the impact of increasing the insulation of the building envelope upon its global thermal performance and annual energy consumption (heating plus cooling).
Chvatal, Karin M. S., Corvacho, M. Helena P., Maldonado, Eduardo A. B
When making design decisions, which can impact on building capital cost and performance, the design team has to be confident that the simulation tool is generating reliable output. Confidence can be gained via several mechanisms.
Mark Tamburrini, David Palmer and Iain A Macdonald
In principal, the algorithms used in advanced lighting simulation software are equally applicable to interior and exterior situations [Ashdown 1994][Ward 1998]. In practice the scope is limited: a realistic CAD model of a building in a complex urb
Faidon Nikiforiadis and Adrian Pitts
This study develops a simplified estimation method for calculating the effective opening area of automatically operated entrance doors and the winter airflow rate into entrance halls due to the stack effect.
Kimiko Kohri
This paper presents the development of a simulation tool based on the Matlab computational environment for building temperature performance analysis with automatic control.
Mendes N, Oliveira G H C, Araújo H X and Coelho L S
The primary aim of the present study was to evaluate thermal storage performance of the storage medium embedded with metal fins and to prepare and accumulate design data.
Koji Sakai, Masaki Manabe, Hitoshi Yamazaki and Syoichi Kojima
This article presents a mathematical model that provides explicit support for preserving the consistency between decisions made at various points during building performance analysis. Analytical Target Cascading, a multilevel engineering design op

During the last years much interest has been paid to Low Temperature Systems, i.e.
F. Currò Dossi, M. De Carli, R. Del Bianco, F. Fellin, M. Tonon, R. Zecchin
Thermal building simulation programs, such as EnergyPlus, approximate solutions of a differential algebraic system of equations. While the theoretical

Air supply diffusers used in air-conditioning systems can be classified as ceiling diffusers, sidewall diffusers, floor diffusers, jet nozzles, and low velocity displacement diffusers.
H.T. Xu, and J.L. Niu
Two dissimilar models capable of predicting the electrical and thermal performance of residential cogeneration fuel cell systems have been developed for use with the ESP-r building simulation program.
Alex Ferguson, Ian Beausoleil-Morrison, V. Ismet Ugursal
When applying the radiant floor cooling system, it is important to prevent condensation on the floor surface. To solve this problem, a radiant floor cooling system integrated with the dehumidification system has been proposed and evaluated.
