Design of different energy-efficient office buildings in Norway with different energy concepts were studied with a number of different simulation tools.
Matthias Haase, Igor Sartori, Natasa Djuric, Rasmus Høseggen
It is necessary to do research on the heat and moisture transfer in the earth-sheltered building for getting a better underground environment.
Xibin Ma, Baoyi Cheng, Jinfeng Mao, Wenjie Liu, Dongyi Zi
Increasing insulation thickness may reduce the energy consumption and environmental load in building operation phase, but may also increase those in insulation production phase.
Lijing Gu, Borong Lin, Xiaoru Zhou, Yingxin Zhu
Establishing the appropriate measure for estimating and improving the energy performance of a new building is very important at Schematic Design.
Yu Young-Dong, Woo Sae-Jin, Suh Hye-Soo
The purpose of this study is to propose an optimal design method for the energy system in apartment house using a genetic algorithm and to examine the possibility for the energy conservation of a designed energy system.
Janghoo Seo, Ryozo Ooka, Genku Kayo
In this paper, the hygrothermal controll material, the interior finishing material with moisture sorption and desorption characteristics containing PCM (Phase Change Material utilizing latent heat), is developed to provide the function of constant

In this paper, eight ventilation strategies in a typical apartment floor plan in Jeju, Korea were studied.
Young-Jin Kim, Cheol-Soo Park
This paper addresses the optimal design of residential ventilation systems in an apartment floor plan in Korea.
Young-Jin Kim, Cheol-Soo Park
Natural light is irreplaceable because it is a full-spectrum light, it changes during the day and it is different every day of the year.
Michele De Carli and Valeria De Giuli
This paper reports a modelling study on quantitative assessment of economical benefits of three low energy solutions that could be easily applied to a large number of office buildings in the delta area of Yangtze River, where climate is characteri

Advanced façade systems such as double skin facades are increasingly common. However, evaluation of performance in terms of energy and comfort is not always possible.
Harris Poirazis, and Mikkel Kragh
Orthonormal Basis Functions (OBF) is a structure of dynamic models that have been applied in different classes of dynamic systems.
Bruno C. Reginato, Roberto Z. Freire, Gustavo H. C. Oliveira, Nathan Mendes and Marc O. Abadie
Effects of differences in a town’s configuration and the building surface components on urban warming were investigated. One of the most traditional and now urbanized districts in Osaka was selected as the objective.
N Umemiya, S Sakurai, M Kawamoto and R Okura
The knowledge of the local loss coefficients is important for the accurate calculation of ventilation duct pressure loss.
Vladimir Zmrhal, Jan Schwarzer
Cooling energy refurbishment of buildings can be achieved by coating the outdoor walls with paints that have high solar reflectance (0.3-2.5µm) and high thermal emittance (4-80µm).
Maxime Doya, Emmanuel Bozonnet, Francis Allard
Presented work is devoted to numerical analysis of wind flow in vicinity of recently renovated historical building. The analysed building is a part of larger old post industrial complex transformed into cultural centre.
Katarzyna Klemm and Dariusz Heim
The wind environment around a building influences human lives and the design of it. Simulation by CFD software is a main method used to study wind environment.
Bing Wang, Borong Lin
This paper describes an outdoor-indoor thermal investigation of a multifamily residential building during summer in Cairo, Egypt.
Mohamad Fahmy, Stephen Sharples, Ali Eltrapolsi
According to both the actual energy context and the latest laws meeting EU requirements about energy certification schemes for buildings, carrying out an energy performance diagnosis is mandatory, notably when buying or selling buildings.
Stéphane Grieu, Adama Traoré, Olivier Faugeroux, Bernard Claudet, Frédérik Thiery and Jean-Luc Bodnar
This paper describes the latest developments in the simulation of a thermal probe apparatus, building on earlier work as reported by de Wilde et al. (2007). The work focuses on researching the role of the probe to sample conductance H.
