This paper describes how a multi-zone air flow simulation program has been used for the evaluation of the performance of a hybrid ventilation system in a Swedish school.
Åke Blomsterberg, Tomas Johansson
Energy and environment issues such as the reduction of greenhouse gas emissions and ecological-friendly buildings are increasingly of interest in the Korean housing market.
J. Clarke, J. Hong, J. Kim, P. Strachan, I. Hwang, H. Lee
In recent years, indoor humidity levels are gaining greater attention in building design and operation, due to the increasing concern over moisture-related problems, such as mold growth, indoor air quality and discomfort of the occupants.
Khee Poh Lam, Stephen R. Lee, Gregory M. Dobbs and Chaoqin Zhai
This paper covers the innovative use of advanced numerical simulation in the field of structural engineering.
Caroline J Field, Andrew Mole and Mark Arkinstall
The introduction of EU directives 2002/91/EC and 2003/87/EC both prompt a reduction in energy consumption from European buildings. Buildings account for 50% of European energy use.
 James O'Donnell, Elmer Morrissey, Marcus Keane, Brian O' Gallachoir, Vladimir Bazjanac,
The Australian Building Greenhouse Rating (ABGR) scheme is a performance-based rating for office buildings.
Paul Bannister
The aim of the presented work is to compare two solution methods of specific and latent heat transfer in building components e.g.
Dariusz Heim
Earth-to-Air Heat Exchanger (ETAHE) technology has been implemented in many mechanical ventilation systems. A literature review revealed that recent advancements in ETAHE modeling were focused on simulating heat conduction in soil.
Jian Zhang and Fariborz Haghighat
This paper discusses the modification and testing of an existing dynamic thermal model to include the calculation of the effects of glazing and shading options such as slatted blinds.
D.K. Alexander, A. Mylona, and P.J. Jones
This paper proposes a method for creating an extreme seven-day weather data set for HVAC design purposes and examines its suitability.
Hisaya Ishino
This paper discusses an experience of teaching building simulation to students in a small class of a Masters program in an architecture school. This was a course in assessing building performance using an hourly thermal simulation program.
Veronica I Soebarto
Building simulation tools (energy, lighting, plant simulation, CFD, etc) have long been the preserve of a few specialist consultancies rather than being used where they can have the greatest impact - by construction design practices.
Iain A Macdonald, Lori B McElroy, Jon W Hand, Joe A Clarke
In this paper, four different system configurations: 
Chaoqin Zhai, Xiaohong Liao, Reinhard Radermacher, Khee Poh Lam, Volker Hartkopf
This paper explores means for more effectively exploiting daylight in buildings through extending periods of illumination free of glare problems. The key concept is to quantify and examine the impact of selected design parameters, e.g.
Mohamed Kassab, James A. Love
Moisture is one of the main problems in buildings. In spite of the complexity to describe moisture physical phenomena, recent technological improvements have allowed them to be incorporated into building simulation programs.
Kátia Cordeiro Mendonça, Etienne Wurtz and Christian Inard
Significant R&D work has been on going in the development of integrated software environments that support building energy simulation.
Barry O’Sullivan, Marcus Keane
This paper proposes an automated commissioning method for air-conditioning systems through comparing the measured energy consumption with the simulated energy consumption, which is simulated using a model newly developed through fitting manufactur

Sustainable housing standards are reviewed including the UK 2005 building regulations, the UK Advanced Standard and EU Passive-house Standard. Conflicts between the standards are highlighted.
Paul Tuohy, Lori McElroy, Cameron Johnstone
CEN TC247 has prepared draft standards for main types of room controllers. These standards include a performance testing procedure that was designed to facilitate the introduction on the market of electronic controllers.
P. Riederer, F. Bruyat, B. Clémençon, S. Bernasconi, G. Desjardins
This paper presents the testing of a dynamic on-line whole-building energy calculator.
