This paper uses two case studies to illustrate the process of building design with due regard to sustainable construction and how the recent changes in legislations affect the way buildings are designed in the UK.
Mei J. Ren, Matthew Cotton, Kate Brown, Garry Palmer
Combined heat, air, moisture and pollutant simulations (CHAMPS) at the building system level are essential for improving energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality.
Andreas Nicolai, Jianshun S. Zhang and John Grunewald
Modelling and simulation of energy consumption in Information Technology (IT) building on the Rockhampton campus of Central Queensland University, Australia is presented.
Ashfaque Ahmed Chowdhury, M. G. Rasul, M. M. K. Khan
This paper presents a model-based supervisory control strategy for online control of building central cooling water systems to enhance their energy efficiency.
Shengwei Wang, Zhenjun Ma and Xinhua Xu
The present paper proposes an optimal operational strategy of an actual HVAC system with a seasonal underground thermal storage system using simulation. The simulation is a powerful tool for the system because it is difficult to try various operat

A rational method to estimate the energy baseline of a building is indispensable in performing such as retro commissioning, on going commissioning and ESCO (Energy Service Company) projects.
Masato Miyata, Harunori Yoshida, Takuro Iwata, Zhaoming Zhang, Yoichi Tanabe, Tadahiro Yanagisawa
The well-mixing assumptions, uniform distributions of air temperatures and contaminant concentrations and neglect of air momentum effects in a zone, used in multizone airflow network models could cause errors in some cases.
Liangzhu (Leon) Wang and Qingyan (Yan) Chen
Most traditional elementary school classrooms here do not have air-conditioners and it often feel stuffy in classrooms located in the top floors.
Hsin-hung Wu, Fu-Jen Wang, Che-ming Chiang and Chi-ming Lai
It is difficult to investigate the performance of airconditioning systems with thermal energy storage tanks because flow rate in the system is unmeasured in almost all systems.
Ken-ichiro Takeshima, Kazunobu Sagara, Toshio Yamanaka and Hisashi Kotani
The integration of renewable energies in the dwellings is a solution to diminish their energy consumption.
Raffenel , E Blanco, J Virgone, G Thomas
The new European regulations on energy saving were aimed at a reduction in consumption in the winter phase.
F. Stazi, C. Di Perna, L. Del Prete, A. Stazi
Residential Building Energy Efficiency (RBEE) becomes more important in recent years in China. From 1986, Chinese government has carried out a series of codes of RBEE, but for kinds of reasons, the effect is not perfect enough.
Xiaoliang Zhang, Da Yan, Yi Jiang
This paper presents a new methodology for largescale commercial buildings energy consumption data analysis. This methodology relies on a unified energy consumption classification structure and on a set of index models and estimating models.
Fangting Song, Yi Jiang, Anne Le Mouel, Jean-Jacques Roux
With the occurrence of indoor terrorism attacks and the accidental release of toxic chemicals, people have paid more attentions on such emergency events in recent years.
Lina Zhao, Xianting Li
Subway is consisted of tunnels, platforms and ventilation shafts.
Wei Deng, Xiaofeng Li, Yingxin Zhu
Life cycle green cost assessment (LCGCA) method, which can evaluate building environmental load and economic performance throughout its life cycle comprehensively, is propounded in this paper in order to guide green building design.
Lijing Gu, Daojin Gu, Borong Lin, Mingxing Huang, Jiazi Gai, Yingxin Zhu
In this paper, a 3-floors building with capacious spaces was introduced.
Hongjun Li, Borong Lin, Xiang Zhou, Yingxin Zhu, Guangzong Han and Fanbing Meng
Green building has come to be a goal of building design now. Since sustainable performance of building involves lots of aspects, an integrated index is needed to evaluate it comprehensively.
Daojin Gu, Lijing Gu, Yingxin Zhu
Variable Air Volume (VAV) system has been widely used in order to reduce energy consumption. However, operation performance and energy consumption may not be as good as expectation in practical projects due to some failures.
Zheng Han, Yingxin Zhu, Chunhai Xia, Guohai Xu
Energy conservation at building’s operation stage is very important for the national economy.
Xiaoru Zhou, Yingxin Zhu, Chunhai Xia and Haibo Chen
