As the climate warms, the frequency and scale of extremely hot events are likely to increase. This study predicts overheating risk for the city of Sheffield, UK at a spatial resolution of 5km when the diurnal Urban Heat Island effect is included.
Chunde Liu, David Coley
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.
Ghjuvan Antone Faggianelli, Adrien Brun, Etienne Wurtz, Marc Muselli
In this paper, predictive models are developed to enable the application of model predictive control (MPC) to naturally ventilated buildings.
Joshua Stephen Sykes, Elizabeth Abigail Hathway, Peter Rockett
Most controllers in Heating, Ventilation and Airconditioning (HVAC) applications remain the Proportional-Integral (PI) type.
Yanfei Li, Zheng O’Neill, Fuxin Niu
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.
Marco Bonvini, Michael Wetter
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.
Matthew Eames, Mike Wood, Peter Challenor
Utilizing building performance feedback as part of the preliminary design process can suggest environmentally responsive strategies and inform subsequent architectural development.
Elliot Glassman
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.
Youness Ajaji, Philippe André
An HVAC circuit is a collection of interconnected elements that can be modelled by interconnected blocks.
Christian Ghiaus
In case of an accidental release of indoor airborne pollutants, it is critical to know information of the pollutant sources.
Yun Wei, Tengfei Zhang
The building industry nowadays is facing two major challenges – increased concern for energy reduction and growing need for thermal comfort.
Vaibhav Khare, Anuj Mathur, Jyotirmay Mathur, Mahabir Bhandari
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.
Jiayu Li, Yuefei Hou, Junjie Liu
Double skin façades (DSF), are typically composed by two transparent envelope elements separated by a ventilated airspace.
Alessandro Dama, Diego Angeli
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.
Kazuki Yamada, Yoshifusa Nishimura, Koji Sakai, Ryoichi Kajiya
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.
Nozomi Saito, Hiroki Ono, Ryoichi Kajiya, Koji Sakai
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.
