This book provides practical, down-to-earth coverage of the non-software aspects of using computerized building energy simulation. While software is the principal qtoolq in the process, the focus of this presentation is on the data needed to build a model, how to build a model, examining the results, diagnosing problems with a model, and calibrating them to reality. If you have been frustrated trying to build faithful models of existing buildings, or have become skeptical of the efficacy of building simulation - or are just trying to do a better job simulating buildings - this book will offer you welcome assistance.1-Introduction2-Building Simulation Myths3-Accuracy aamp; Selecting a Tool4-Determination of Existing Conditions5-Building Survey Case Studies6-Constructing the Model7-Critiquing Output aamp; Model Calibration8-Modeling Energy Conservation ...
