Simulation versus Reality – 4 case studies

Anthony Calderone

Abstract: This paper will focus on four completed projects that have gone through a process of concept design, including energy consumption simulation, followed by design, construction and operation. Through the implementation of comprehensive metering systems in these buildings comparison to computer simulation predictions and real outcomes can been achieved. Differences between the modelling results were found in all cases and either presented ways to further improve energy efficiency or highlighted where further modelling data validation may have been required. This paper will describe some of these findings in further detail.
