This webinar relates to chapter 15 of book 'Building Performance Simulation for Design and Operation' edited by  Jan L.M. Hensen and Roberto Lamberts. Chapter 15 deals with integrated urban resource flow modelling. After setting the scene, in terms of the rates and consequences of urbanisation and the associated need for models to support the formulation of policies, plans and strategies to mitigate adverse consequences of urbanisation, the nature of the integrated urban modelling challenge will be described. This will consider the range of principle urban systems to be modelled and the data and computational challenges that need to be overcome in this endeavour, as we strive towards the development of comprehensive and useful urban policy and planning decision support. Alternative urban building energy modelling strategies will then be described, placing particular emphasis on city-scale building energy modelling; comparing detailed micro simulation with the simulation of and extrapolation from building typologies.
All IBPSA Education Series webinars are free.
