IBPSA-USA Education On Demand
Annual luminance maps provide meaningful evaluations for occupants’ visual comfort, preferences, and perception. However, acquiring annual luminance maps require labor-intensive and time-consuming simulations or impracticable long-term field measurements.
Please join the Boston Chapter of IBPSA-USA for a networking session over Zoom and presentations from Irmak Turan and
This video has been made free to view for all. This two-part presentation introduces the indoor air quality modeling software CONTAM and the web-based tool FaTIMA for modeling the Fate and Transport of Indoor Microbiological Aerosols.
This Boston Chapter event features presentations from Nathaniel Jones and Holly Samuelson covering advances in building simulation research.
Internet of things has revolutionized the way devices, actuators, buildings occupant, building operators, and utilities interact.
As greater quantities of variable renewable energy are integrated into the electric grid the hour to hour variation in emissions is only increasing. This is at odds with how building designers have traditionally treated all kilowatt hours as equal from an emissions standpoint.
This Boston Chapter of IBPSA-USA webinar features two presentations: Luke Troup, a recent graduate fr
This webinar is primarily targeted to individuals who regularly create building energy models (BEM) from building information models (BIM).
The predominant tool for 2D heat transfer analysis is THERM which has a toilsome interface for drafting and post-processing façade details.
Eric Mannarino from the Electric Power Research Institute (EPRI) will discuss energy storage systems, DER, and decarbonization, along with its involvement in the uti
In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, ASHRAE, REHVA, and other industry authorities have published a ton of information on how to maintain occupant health and safety in buildings....
NREL’s REopt™ software provides concurrent, multiple technology integration and optimization capabilities to help organizations meet their cost savings and energy performance goals.
This Research Committee seminar will introduce an open-source, free software package that provides practical, end-to-end (from the IT equipment, to heat rejection, to the ambient) modeling and optimization for data center cooling.
Please join us as we revive monthly meetings for the Boston-area building simulation community. The first meeting of 2020 will take place over video conferencing, and we look forward to transitioning to in-person gatherings when it is safe to do so.
Engineers are responsible for helping design systems that can save energy and water, and use resources wisely to help propel our world to a more sustainable future. But what happens after the construction crews leave?

Energy modeling is often only associated with new construction projects with high sustainability aspirations.
Please join the the IBPSA-USA Wisconsin Chapter for their online quarter 2 event as their technical association will take on the current event of COVID-19 (Novel Coronavirus) as it relates to transmission, prevention, HVAC design, and building performance.
Advances in simulation techniques and computing power, coupled with more progressive goals for decarbonization in buildings, have propelled urban-scale simulation to the fore over the past decade. (
This was an IBPSA-USA hosted webinar for our sponsor Trane. TRACE 3D Plus is a next generation building design and analysis software program that delivers faster, more accurate results through a seamless workflow that closely aligns with today's building process. Built on the U.S.
As we all know, occupants are modeled in very simple ways in building simulation environments. This comes with two risks: 1) inaccurate predictions, and 2) poor decision-making that is informed by these inaccurate predictions.
This is a recording of a San Francisco Bay Area Chapter event, held at Affiliated Engineers Inc. in San Francisco on January 22, 2020.
How do I judge the content of a paper on a subject I’m not familiar with? How can I give constructive feedback to improve a paper’s quality? When should I reject a paper? This Research Committee presentation will cover best practices for reviewing conference and journal papers.

Presentation 1: Advancing codes and standards to meet evolving needs and BEM implications
Building performance simulations are a critical tool for designing buildings that meet our urgent sustainability goals. Yet they are only effective if they can communicate results and conclusions that align with the environmental, economic and social aspirations of the project.
