Analysis of wind-driven flow and external convective heat transfer coefficients for the bestest model building | 2005 | English
A study of the relationship between daylight performance and height difference of buildings in high density cities using computational simulation | 2005 | English | 6 pp
Daylight design for “extremely” obstructed urban environment is a relatively uncharted area of scholarship. The reason might be that the problem has not been critically important.
A monthly method for calculating energy performance in the context of european building regulations | 2005 | English
The European Energy Performance in Building Directive (EPBD) requires methods for the calculation of the energy performance for use in the context of building regulations.
Analysis and optimization of the thermal comfort of a non airconditioned16 000 m2 tent, with transient and cfd simulations | 2005 | English
The Haima is a non air-conditioned 16,000 m2 tent designed to house fifteen exhibitions about conditions for peace, viewed as solutions to economic, cultural and environmental conflict, during the Barcelona Forum 2004.
3x4 – Easy specification of technical installations in building energy calculation software | 2005 | English
The paper describes a strategy of how to implement technical installations (heating, domestic hot water and ventilation) in a building energy calculation application in an effective and userfriendly manner. Technical installations are designed usi
A simulation-based review of the ubiquitous window-head-height to daylit zone depth rule-of-thumb | 2005 | English
This paper reviews the validity of the ubiquitous daylighting rule of thumb (DRT) that relates window-head-height to the depth of the daylit area adjacent to a facade.
The paper presents a new approach for analyzing mold growth risk in buildings, based on a mixed simulation approach with consideration of uncertainties in relevant building parameters.
An integrated study of radiant slab cooling systems throughexperiment and building simulation | 2005 | English
Radiant cooling systems for thermal comfort in commercial buildings are new to North America. The University of Calgary’s ICT Building has a hybrid radiant slab-mixed air system that offers an opportunity to evaluate operating performance. Through
A proposed system-level model for simulating the thermal and electrical production of solid-oxide fuel cell residential cogeneration devices within whole-building simulation | 2005 | English
A new model for predicting the thermal and electrical performance of solid-oxide fuel cell (SOFC) cogeneration devices for residential buildings has been developed.
A hygrothermal building model based on theobject-oriented modeling language modelica | 2005 | English
A new hygrothermal building model is being developed within the research project GENSIM by the Fraunhofer institutes FIRST and IBP. The model implementation takes place by using the objectoriented modeling language Modelica.
This paper explores the degree to which subjective assessments of the acoustical properties of a real space can be reproduced by assessments that are based on computational auralization.
A prescription method for the design of office buildings an energetic – economic approach | 2005 | English
A new Energy Code for office buildings in Israel, currently under development, is presented.
Apolux - an innovative computer code for daylight design and analysis in architecture and urbanism | 2005 | English
APOLUX 1.0 is a computer code specifically developed for assisting the architect regarding daylighting considerations; it runs in a threedimensional graphic environment, accepts files from graphic editors and uses models physically consistent for
The impact of building regulations on the final form of a design can be quite significant.
Agent-based measuring, control and regulation techniques for hvac-system simulations | 2005 | English
In this paper we present an interactive software prototype for fluid flow problems in civil engineering including:
Matlab/Simulink is known in a large number of fields as a powerful and modern simulation tool. In the field of building and HVAC simulation its use is also increasing.
Dedicated outdoor air systems (DOAS) have been proposed to treat the outdoor air before it enters the building and thus reduce the load on the zone equipment.
The California Commercial End Use Survey (CEUS) project is being conducted for the California Energy Commission (CEC) by Itron, Inc. with support from KEMA-Xenergy, ADM Associates, and James J. Hirsch & Associates.
