The present study numerically investigated the optimum insulation thickness determination for conventional walls in Tehran, the capital of Iran. In this study, aerated brick and concrete were considered as the main wall materials, and XPS and EPS as the insulation materials. The one-dimensional...
Model predictive control (MPC) is a recent development that uses modelling and simulation with forecast conditions to exploit building thermal mass in an effort to improve indoor thermal comfort and reduce energy use/cost compared with traditional rule-based control strategies. This paper...
In this study, four important techniques for estimating the non-process energy (heating, cooling, lighting and ventilation) in industrial and manufacturing buildings were examined. The building energy data for two industrial facilities were collected and analysed. The building non-process energy...
Uninhabited buildings do not require energy; therefore building energy consumption depends on user habits and domestic appliance equipment. Naturally, building energy performance (BEP) also depends on geometrical, thermophysical and heating, ventilating and air conditioning characteristics, but...
This research article discusses the methods for designing sustainable, high-performance facades, and the necessary steps in ensuring that the environmental factors and energy-efficiency strategies are integrated with the design process. The facade is one of the most significant contributors to...
Buildings contribute a major component of the world's total energy consumption. During the design phase, building energy simulation models can be used to predict building performance and design energy-efficient buildings that consume an optimal amount of energy, if operated and maintained within...
