In this study, a multizone model of an existing shopping mall is developed in IDA Indoor Climate and Energy (IDA ICE).
Sofia Stensson, Monica Axell, Per Fahlén, Jörgen Eriksson and Simon Roos
This paper describes an effort to build and partially validate an energy model of an existing educational building located in Cambridge, MA, USA.
Holly A. Wasilowski and Christoph F. Reinhart
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).
Prazeres L, Kim J and Hand J
The use of computer simulation has increased rapidly within the construction industry over the last few years and this trend is set to continue.
Catherine Simpson and Michael Whalley
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.
Twan van Hooff, Bert Blocken
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.
Francesc Bonvehí, and Mónica Bobrovsky
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.
D. Michael UTZINGER and David E. BRADLEY
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

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.
Paul Raftery, Marcus Keane and Andrea Costa
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.
Michael Pollock, Ya Roderick, David McEwan, Craig Wheatley
Today, many building software tools for evaluating energy efficiency are available. More than three hundred are listed by the US Department of Energy.
Adrien Brun, Clara Spitz,Etienne Wurtz and Laurent Mora
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.
Murphy, G B, Kummert M, Anderson B R and Counsell J
With the increasing awareness of sustainable development in the construction industry, implementation of an energy rating procedure to assess buildings is becoming more important.
Ya Roderick, David McEwan, Craig Wheatley and Carlos Alonso
Ultraviolet Germicidal Irradiation (UVGI) systems use 254 nm UVC radiation to inactivate microorganisms in the air and on surfaces.
Bruno Lee, William Bahnfleth and Katja Auer
In-duct ultraviolet germicidal irradiation (UVGI) systems treat moving air streams in heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning (HVAC) systems to inactivate airborne microorganisms.
William Bahnfleth, Bruno Lee, Josephine Lau, James Freihaut
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.
Wout Parys, Dirk Saelens and Hugo Hens
Indoor climate has a distinct influence on productivity and sick leave of employees.
Wim Plokker and Aad Wijsman
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.
Aizaz Samuel
This paper presents a semi-empirical steady-state model of an air-cooled water chiller.
Vincent Lemort, Jean Lebrun, Clemens Felsmann
This paper presents detailed information about testing and validation of cooling and heating coil models.
Clemens Felsmann, Jean Lebrun, Vincent Lemort and Aad Wijsman
