Description of occupant behaviour in building energy simulation: state-of-art and concepts for improvements | 2011 | English
In order to decrease the concentration of indoor pollutants, sorptive building materials have been used.
Dynamic insulation applied to the residential building (Part 1). Numerical Evaluation of Window Frame applied Various Dynamic Insulation Patterns | 2011 | English
It is important to insulate the glazing or frames of windows efficiently because they usually contribute to some of the greatest heat loss from dwelling houses.
Dynamic insulation applied to the residential building (Part 2). Numerical Evaluation of Thermal Insulation Effect on Air Supply Window System | 2011 | English
We designed a new air supply window system to ventilate indoors through the air space of a double pane window and evaluated its insulation efficiency and probability of moisture condensation in order to confirm its feasibility and applicability.
Effects of variations of occupant behavior on residential building net zero energy performance | 2011 | English
The objective of the work is to identify the types of occupant-driven residential behaviour variations that most significantly impact a designer’s ability to predict energy consumption and peak electrical demand of a house.
Evaporative cooling is an attractive energy-efficient technique for producing a comfortable indoor environment. The efficiency and low cost of water spray evaporative cooling systems makes them a good alternative to reduce energy use.
In future highly energy-efficient buildings, heat pumps will play a key role.
A new thermal analysis by numerical simulation to investigate the energy performance of buildings | 2011 | English
The aim of the work is to present a new methodology that allows to identify the most important parameters affecting the energy performance of buildings under certain conditions.
Numerical simulation on hygrothermal environment of whole buildings taking into account complete ham features | 2011 | English
Many simulation software to predict thermal environment of buildings, such as temperature, humidity, heating and cooling load of building spaces, have been developed.
In this paper we present a method to simulate res-idential building occupants’ activities, which can be directly used to predict occupants’ presence and as an input to models of occupants’ behavior, resulting in more coherent and accurate predicti
Human body’s micro-climate: measurement and simulation for the coupling of cfd with a human thermoregulation model | 2011 | English
When coupling computational fluid dynamics (CFD) with a detailed thermal comfort model describing the human thermoregulation, the characteristics of the micro-climate of the human body have to be known.
Energy efficiency vs subjective comfort: a multiobjective optimisation method under uncertainty | 2011 | English
A multiobjective optimisation methodology is proposed to optimise building design against both physical performance (such as energy efficiency) and psychophysical performance (such as occupant comfort).
Feed-forward air-conditioning control using a weather forecasting data in school building in heating season | 2011 | English
To achieve the low-carbon society, Japanese government has conducted; 1) to revise “Laws Concerning the Rational Use of Energy”, 2) to manifest reducing 25 % of CO2 emission, and 3) to participate COP15 as international activity. Various technique
Energy saving by cooperative operation between district heating and cooling plant and building HVAC system | 2011 | English
District heating and cooling (DHC) systems show a great potential for energy saving.
Carbon dioxide concentration is often taken as an indicator of indoor air quality, especially in spaces where human beings are the main contaminant source.
From technical to usage energy efficiency in buildings: application to a heated room | 2011 | English
In the context of more and more efficient building research, as passive house or Energy plus building, the occupants have become a central actor of building system.
Development of the automatic optimization and degradation detection tool for hvac primary system | 2011 | English
Automatic optimization and degradation detection tool for HVAC primary system was developed. It synchronizes with Building Energy Management System (BEMS), and it does optimization and degradation diagnosis automatically.
The diversity of non-domestic buildings at urban scale poses a number of difficulties to develop building stock models. This research proposes an engineering-based bottom-up stock model in a probabilistic manner to address these issues.
Spatial distribution of pressure drag acting on rectangular block arrays with various layouts | 2011 | English
This study reported a series of wind tunnel experiments on the spatial distribution of the pressure drag acting on the walls of rectangular block arrays, which were arranged in staggered, square, and diamond layouts under the conditions of differe
