In the last 7 years, a method has been developed to analyse building energy performance using computer simulation, in Brazil. The method combines analysis of building design plans and documentation, walk-through visits, electric and thermal measurements and the use of an energy simulation tool...
To provide practitioners with the means to tackle problems related to poor indoor environments, building simulation and computational fluid dynamics can usefully be integrated within a single computational framework. This paper describes the outcomes from a research project sponsored by the...
In our formulation of zonal models for calculating room air temperature and flow distributions, the behavior of a room is represented by the connection of SPARK calculation modules. Modules to describe the building walls and various systems have been created. They form the models library. By...
This article motivates the need for more research into the interaction between building design and building analysis in a process context. To provide a context for this discussion, the text focusses on a specific problem: the selection of energy saving building components. A strategy to provide...
In civil engineering, there is an increasing demand for calculation methods to assess the moisture behaviour of building components. Current tasks, such as preserving historical buildings or restoring and insulating existing buildings are closely related to the moisture conditions in a building...
Energy simulation (ES) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD) can play an important role in building design by providing complementary information of the building performance. However, separate applications of ES and CFD usually cannot give an accurate prediction of building thermal and flow...
The paper describes new improvements in S OLENE , a set of numerical models for the simulation of natural light in both the urban morphologies and the indoor architectural spaces which is developed in our laboratory. This tool takes into account the direct solar and the diffuse sky luminous...
A broad range of simulation software applications has become available for a variety of building performance assessments over the last three decades. The maturation of building simulation into a recognized and indispensable discipline for all professions, involved in the design, engineering,...
This paper presents the developments, implementation and application of an extensive building representation which supports the holistic performance assessment of building performance within a single application. This new development supports various views of performance throughout the building...
