Towards A BIM-Based Service Oriented Platform: Application To Building Energy Performance Simulation

Anthony Cormier, Sylvain Robert, Pierrick Roger

Abstract: In order to popularize the use of building simulation during the design process, a possible solution is to identify and integrate the different components of a simulation system - such as a geometry converter and a calculation engine in a generalist Building Information Model (BIM) software platform. With this in mind, this paper presents a research work aiming at integrating a Building Energy Performance Simulation (BEPS) service in a versatile serviceoriented BIM platform. It particularly focuses on the methodology used to obtain a complete Building Simulation Model (BSM) ready for calculation from an IFC (Industry Foundation Classes)-based BIM.
