This is a recording of an Urban scale simulation research sub-committee webinar, held on April 25, 2018. The seminar presents LBNL's research on data, methods, tools and case studies of urban building energy modeling (UBEM). Opportunities and challenges of UBEM will be discussed.
This is a recording of a Chicago Chapter webinar, held on April 11, 2018. Join the Chicago Chapter of IBPSA-USA (CHIBPSA) for their webinar on Performance Modeling for Building Enclosure and Occupant Comfort Optimization.
This is a recording of a San Francisco Bay Area Chapter webinar, held on March 22, 2018. WELL is somehow advertised as a standard with a minimum simulation requirement, however there is a strong need for simulation tools in many categories viz. Air, Light and Comfort; and moving forward these needs will gradually emerge.
This a recording of a Denver Chapter webinar, held on March 22, 2018. Matt Steen from Ambient Energy will present a spreadsheet-based tool that automates creating models and reporting results using OpenStudio.
This is a recording of a SF Bay Area Chapter webinar, held on January 25, 2018. Through our reference case project, HouseZero, for Harvard University, Kasper will take the participants through the engineering solutions used to design a 100% natural ventilation solution.
In this seminar, we critically discuss how annual metrics and other methods of daylighting analysis & simulation can help you understand how daylighting is conceptualized, collaborated on and executed in buildings.
This is a recording of a Denver Chapter webinar, held on August 17, 2017. Matt Duffy from Affiliated Engineers Inc. (AEI) will present on using the TRNSYS simulation software that has been publicly available for over 40 years and continues to use a modular, component-based structure to solve energy systems.
View a recording of this webinar below, which was held on February 27, 2018. Learn more about Project StaSIO and the competition. Winners will be announced at the 2018 Building Performance Analysis Conference and SimBuild, co-organized by ASHRAE and IBPSA-USA.
The challenge of simulating airflow in buildings comes from the unique combination of complex geometry and boundary conditions and the intrinsic dynamics of the air flow, particularly when buoyancy force and convection are important - as they often are.
Anica is an advocate for the use of simulation in design, and considers it critical to HOK’s mission. Her talk will describe how HOK tracked both modeling costs and predicted energy savings for a selection of it projects over the course of several years.
The webinar provides an overview on human thermoregulation, thermal sensation and comfort perception. Influence factors and performance indicators for the assessment of thermal comfort in uniform and non-uniform environments are summarized.
This webinar gives an overview of what is at the very heart of building simulation: simulation of the building envelope and heat transfer within individual zones.
This talk addresses various aspects of people’s presence and behaviour in buildings and their implications for buildings performance.
The third webinar of this series was held jointly by Charles ‘Chip’ Barnaby and Drury B Crawley. This webinar describes the weather data requirements of Building Performance Simulation (BPS) applications, how those data are represented and their available data sources.
The second webinar of the series was held on Thursday, Sept. 1, 2016 by, Prof. Godfried Augenbroe. This session deals with identifying building performance in rigorous ways and making the role of simulations more explicit in design decisions.
