Analytical tests are based on physically simple cases for which the exact solution is known. A set of recommended analytical tests is described for the validation of conduction calculations in dynamic thermal models of buildings. They are one product of a collaborative research project on model...
Renewed interest is being shown in designing for natural ventilation, as a means of avoiding the need for air conditioning. This has come about as a result of concern about local and global environmental issues related to air conditioned buildings. On the local level there is, for example, the...
The performance of an atrium sprinkler is investigated by a crude analysis and a fire field model. In the crude analysis, empirical expressions for the fire plume are used to study the thermal responses of the sprinkler head. In the field model, a set of partial differential equations describing...
The non-uniformity of the hygrothermal constituent of the environment (NUN) causes problems not only in hot workplaces in industry, but also in light buildings, in air-conditioned and even in ventilated buildings. It is almost impossible to avoid cold draughts, unilateral thermal radiation etc....
The paper summarises the arguments which led to the establishment of 'environmental temperature' as a room index temperature and its attendant model for discussion of room internal heat exchange. The model leads to some logically absurd conclusions. The index proves to be flawed since it was...
Control may be carried out using compact mathematical models which describe the thermal behaviour of building systems. In this paper, the performance of advanced stochastic model-based control algorithms for use in building energy management systems (BEMS) is compared with that of the...
