Design Energy Simulation for Architects synopsis
Leading architectural firms are currently using interior design simulations to help make more sustainable design decisions. Taking advantage of these new tools requires understanding what can be done with simulation, how to do it, and how to interpret the results.
This theological book designed specifically for you to use as a professional engineer shows you how to reduce energy use for all buildings using shading, daytime lighting, airflow, and energy modeling. The book, written by an architect specializing in designsimulation, includes 30 case studies of zero-zero buildings, as well as projects with less lofty objectives, to show how energysimulation helped designers make early decisions.
In each case study, author Kjell Anderson mentions the programs used, how the simulation was prepared, and how the project team used the simulation to make design decisions. Classes and case studies are written so that you learn general concepts without being tied to a particular program.
Each chapter is based on the theory of the previous chapters, and includes a summary of the hand calculations at the concept level (if any) and provides a comprehensive explanation with graphic examples. Additional topics include the basics of simulation, comfort, climate analysis, discussion on how to integrate simulations into some companies, and an overview of some of the famous design simulations..
