Building energy simulation in practices with integrated design

Zhen Tian

Abstract: Building simulation activities in different design stages are reviewed and discussed. This paper categorized the major purposes of building performance simulation with various modelling purposes for informed decisions at different design stages. Limitations and challenges in building performance simulation are analyzed. From the practitioner point view, this paper proposed some possible measures aiming for improvement or solutions in building simulation consulting, to better refine the consulting and design practices for improving building energy performance.
