Increasingly the fire protection concerns at airports are being addressed using computational fluid dynamics and most of these studies have been based on the prescriptive recommendations on design of an airport terminal building given by appropria

This paper focuses initially on the calculation of the flows of exergy corresponding to the energy demand of buildings for the following uses: heating and cooling in the air handling units, local (room level) heating and cooling, lighting, ventila

Despite the low energy and lower maintenance benefits of ground-source heat pump systems, little work has been undertaken in detailed analysis and simulation of such systems.
Daniel E. Fisher and Simon J. Rees
A desiccant cooling unit powered by 14.8 m2 of solar liquid collectors is implemented in a training room in Chambery in Eastern France.

The thermal modelling of windows is often carried out at a high level of precision whilst irradiance anddaylight quantities are predicted using coarse approximations.
R. Ajmat Arch., J. Mardaljevic and V.I. Hanby
This paper gives an overview of recent developments and results of a new integrated heat, air and moisture (HAM) modeling toolkit in Matlab named HAMLab. The recent developments include integration of a whole building model with building systems a

Throughout its thirty year history, the transient energy simulation package TRNSYS has been under continual enhancement by an international group of developers and users.
David Bradley and Michaël Kummert
Hygrothermal modeling of building envelope has received much attention and development in recent years; to increase its flexibility and accessibility is a consequential task.
Qinru Li, Jiwu Rao and Paul Fazio
We analyzed the thermal environment within Kyoto city using a numerical model that considers three elements: the unsteady-state heat conduction of building walls and ground surfaces, radiation heat exchange between walls and ground surfaces, and a

Active diffusing light pipes (such as hollow tubular lighting) are means of directing and diffusion light (daylight or electrical light) into interior spaces. The two principal objectives of this paper are : 1) to show the development of an advanc

Burn Intensive Care Units (ICU) have among the most stringent design criteria for patient rooms in hospital design.
Isabelle Lavedrine, Patric Thomas, James Tharp, Jerry Sipes
A mathematical model applied to building hygrothermal behavior analysis is described in this paper. We have used a lumped approach to model the room air temperature and humidity and a multilayer model in finite volumes for the building envelope.
Gerson Henrique dos Santos and Nathan Mendes
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has evolved from an academic tool to an important commercial design tool over the past decades.
Lars Køllgaard Voigt
This paper deals specifically with analysis of the thermal, airflow and daylighting performance of the façade elements and in particular with the Double Skin Façade (DSF) applied to the south and southeast facing office spine of a laboratory build
Mojtaba Navvab
In this paper, microscopic and macroscopic flow analyses have been employed to identify and analyze the causes of discrepancies of power law zonal models.
E.J.Teshome and Fariborz Haghighat
This paper investigates airflow in an office room with a displacement ventilation system parametrically using three-dimensional CFD.
Yukihiro Hashimoto
Ground source heat pumps (GSHPs) are modelled, analyzed based on exergy, cost, energy and mass, and evaluated exergoeconomically.
