Formal Calibration methodology for a CFD model of a naturally ventilated room
This paper describes a systematic methodology for the development of calibrated thermodynamic Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) models for controlled environments in buildings utilising wireless sensor networks. ...
Formal calibration methodology for CFD model development to support the operation of energy efficient buildings
(Texas A&M University, 2010)
Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) is a robust tool for modelling interactions within and between fluids and solids. CFD can help understand and predict phenomena that are difficult to test experimentally leading ...
Validated CFD study of indoor environmental conditions in a highly-glazed, cross-ventilated meeting room
This paper investigates the environmental conditions inside a highly-glazed cross-ventilated meeting room. A 3D computational fluid dynamics (CFD) model of an indoor environment is developed with the support of the field ...
Evaluation of various turbulence models to predict indoor conditions in a naturally ventilated room
In recent years, Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) has become a popular tool in building simulation. However, developing reliable CFD models requires a high level of expertise in fluid dynamics and numerical techniques. ...
Reduced order modelling of the thermal behaviour of an office space
(Infoscience EPFL Scientific Publications, 2013-09-04)
Reduced Order Models (ROMs) have proven to be a valid and efficient approach to model the thermal behaviour of building zones. The main issues associated with the use of zonal/lumped models are how to (1) divide the domain ...
