Spatial Variations in Overheating Risk of Dwellings Under A Changing Climate: A Case Study of Sheffield, UK | 2015 | English
Among passive strategies to reduce energy consumption in buildings, we focus on natural ventilation, which can bring an important decrease in temperature during summer depending on climate.
In this paper, predictive models are developed to enable the application of model predictive control (MPC) to naturally ventilated buildings.
Most controllers in Heating, Ventilation and Airconditioning (HVAC) applications remain the Proportional-Integral (PI) type.
Residential and commercial buildings use nearly 75% of the overall electrical energy in the U.S., and the amount of renewable energy in the grid keeps increasing.
Adaptive Thermal Building Models And Methods for Scalable Simulations of Multiple Buildings using Modelica | 2015 | English
For building performance simulations of multiple buildings, varying objectives and data availability lead to different requirements for various model applications.
Where modern buildings are unable to maintain the internal environment to within comfort levels they often rely on mechanical systems to become habitable.
Utilizing building performance feedback as part of the preliminary design process can suggest environmentally responsive strategies and inform subsequent architectural development.
Support for Energy And Comfort Management in An Office Building using Smart Electrochromic Glazing: Dynamic Simulations | 2015 | English
In this research, we look for a control strategy of the electrochromic windows, depending on the measurement of the vertical outdoor illuminance and the outdoor temperature, for an efficient highly glazed office building in Brussels.
An HVAC circuit is a collection of interconnected elements that can be modelled by interconnected blocks.
Numerical Study of the Building External Convective Heat Transfers: Effects of the Building Topology And Urban Context | 2015 | English
In case of an accidental release of indoor airborne pollutants, it is critical to know information of the pollutant sources.
The building industry nowadays is facing two major challenges – increased concern for energy reduction and growing need for thermal comfort.
Providing an adequate quantity of fresh, clean air to occupied areas of residential and public buildings is necessary for diluting indoor CO2, airborne particles and other gas pollutant, especially for overpopulated buildings like school.
Modelling Mechanically Ventilated Double Skin Facades with Integrated Shading Device | 2015 | English
Double skin façades (DSF), are typically composed by two transparent envelope elements separated by a ventilated airspace.
Comparison Between the Wind Tunnel Experiment and CFD Analysis intended for Apartment house,Study of Standard k-e model and Durbin model | 2015 | English
In this study, it is a purpose to grasp the effect of natural ventilation in the apartment house. This study targeted the apartment house of 14 floors.
Evaluation of Thermal Environment Around the Blind on Non-Uniform Radiant Fields A CFD Simulation of Heat Transfer Distribution Near the Blinds | 2015 | English
The purpose of this research is to evaluate the indoor thermal environment under the solar shading environment. In this report, it experimented in the room to which the blind was shut to confirm the indoor thermal environment.
In this paper, we compared measurement results with the CFD analysis results using several of modeling methods for a four-way cassette type outlet. As a result, we compiled possible phenomenon in the case of inappropriate modeling methods.
