Lighting powers in shops and their effect on the energy performance of a shopping mall | 2009 | English
Modelling an existing building in DesignBuilder/EnergyPlus: Custom versus default inputs | 2009 | English
This paper describes an effort to build and partially validate an energy model of an existing educational building located in Cambridge, MA, USA.
Building simulation supported projects are difficult to manage when there are many different participants involved (e.g. simulation specialists, project managers, design teams with engineers and/or architects and clients).
Dynamic thermal modelling and physical wind tunnel testing – an important partnership for building simulation 2009 conference | 2009 | English
The use of computer simulation has increased rapidly within the construction industry over the last few years and this trend is set to continue.
CFD analysis of natural ventilation in large semi-enclosed buildings – case study: Amsterdam arena football stadium | 2009 | English
Large modern sports stadia are often multifunctional buildings that are not only used for sports purposes but also for other events such as concerts, conferences and festivities.
In this paper we present a case study about the application of dynamic simulation to asses the energy performance of a building in the context of a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Certification.
Integrating energy simulation into the design process of high performance buildings: A case study of the Aldo Leopold Legacy Center | 2009 | English
The Aldo Leopold Legacy Center is designed to be a net-zero energy building. This paper explains how simulation modelling was integrated into the design process to achieve the design goals.
Extensive energy modeling was used during the design process of the Aldo Leopold Foundation Legacy Center in Baraboo, Wisconsin (USA) both to minimize the building’s overall projected energy use and in a number of instances to determine whether pr
Calibration of a detailed simulation model to energy monitoring system data: A methodology and case study | 2009 | English
This paper outlines a novel methodology for calibrating building energy simulation (BES) models through the use of an evidence-based approach and detailed simulation modelling.
Building simulation as an assisting tool in designing an energy efficient building: A case study | 2009 | English
Decisions made in the very first stages of a building’s design often have a significant impact on energy efficiency and internal environment of the building.
Today, many building software tools for evaluating energy efficiency are available. More than three hundred are listed by the US Department of Energy.
A comparison of the UK standard assessment procedure (SAP) and detailed simulation of building-integrated renewable energy systems | 2009 | English
The drive to reduce UK Carbon Emissions directly associated with dwellings and to achieve a zero carbon home dictates that Renewable Energy Technologies will have an increasingly large role in the built environment.
With the increasing awareness of sustainable development in the construction industry, implementation of an energy rating procedure to assess buildings is becoming more important.
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) systems use 254 nm UVC radiation to inactivate microorganisms in the air and on surfaces.
In-duct ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) systems treat moving air streams in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems to inactivate airborne microorganisms.
Artificial lighting contributes for a large part to the primary energy use of an office building. Lighting control systems can help reduce the lighting energy use.
Indoor climate has a distinct influence on productivity and sick leave of employees.
With the advent of the concepts of efficient energy use focus has shifted towards buildings becoming more air tight and having lower levels of ventilation.
