The main features of a new generation building simulation tool

    Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference article in proceedingsScientificpeer-review

    Abstract

    A new generation building simulation tool combines the most important inter-acting physical processes (air infiltration and ventilation, heat transfer, and
    indoor air quality) in an reliable, effective, and flexible way. Here, reliability has been ensured by adopting solution routines based on the fundamental
    physical laws: mass balance, momentum, and heat balance equations. In addition, air flow and heat transfer calculation routines are tested by analytical
    and comparative test cases with other building simulation tools. An effective mathematical solution routine is adopted, and a modern object oriented
    programming environment is selected. These features offer new possibilities to develop fast and accurate building simulation tools for both general and special needs.
