Meeting the current and future UK challenges for sustainable building designs – Case studies | 2007 | English
Coupling strategies for combined simulation using multizone and building envelope models | 2007 | English
Combined heat, air, moisture and pollutant simulations (CHAMPS) at the building system level are essential for improving energy efficiency and indoor environmental quality.
Modelling and simulation of building energy consumption: a case study on an institutional building in central Queensland, Australia | 2007 | English
Modelling and simulation of energy consumption in Information Technology (IT) building on the Rockhampton campus of Central Queensland University, Australia is presented.
Development of supervisory control strategy for online control of central cooling water systems | 2007 | English
This paper presents a model-based supervisory control strategy for online control of building central cooling water systems to enhance their energy efficiency.
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.
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.
Numerical simulations of the natural ventilation design mix of elementary school classrooms | 2007 | English
Most traditional elementary school classrooms here do not have air-conditioners and it often feel stuffy in classrooms located in the top floors.
Simulation study on estimation method for flow rate in air-conditioning system with water thermal energy storage | 2007 | English
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.
The integration of renewable energies in the dwellings is a solution to diminish their energy consumption.
Comparison between monitoring and simulating. An important step forward for model reliability | 2007 | English
The new European regulations on energy saving were aimed at a reduction in consumption in the winter phase.
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.
Development of a data model for energy consumption analysis and prediction of large-scale commercial buildings | 2007 | English
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.
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.
Subway is consisted of tunnels, platforms and ventilation shafts.
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.
In this paper, a 3-floors building with capacious spaces was introduced.
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.
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.
Simulation-based method to assess building energy consumption level at operation stage | 2007 | English
Energy conservation at building’s operation stage is very important for the national economy.
