Computational Building Performance Simulation For Integrated Design And Product Optimization

Marija Trcka, Roel Loonen, Jan Hensen

Abstract: Integrated computational building performance simulation (CBPS) can help in reducing energy consumption and increasing occupant comfort. However, the deployment of CBPS in practice has not matured and its benefits have not been fully exploited yet. This paper explores the role of CBPS in product and integrated design development and optimization through two studies. The first study explores the use of CBPS for product development within the scope of climate adaptive building shells. The second study presents a method for assisting the design innovation process, which is called ‘Computational Innovation Steering’.
