Building Simulation

An International Journal

ISSN (print): 1996-3599   |    ISSN (online): 1996-8744
Aims and Scope

Building Simulation – An International Journal publishes original, high quality, peer-reviewed research papers and review articles dealing with modeling and simulation of buildings including their systems. Paper submission is solicited on: Theoretical and numerical modeling of building physics including heat and mass (moisture, air pollutants) transfer, air movement, architectural lighting and sound/vibration control systems; Simulation of performance of energy supply systems including heating, ventilation and air-conditioning systems, renewable energy systems, thermal storage, district heating and cooling, combined heating and power systems; Modeling health, productivity, thermal comfort of humans, fire/smoke and emergency control systems, cold/hot water supply systems, sewage systems. Simulation of building chemistry; Advances in modeling including optimization, product modeling, fault detection and diagnostics, inverse models; Advances in software interoperability, validation and calibration techniques; Simulation tools for sustainable buildings and experiences on teaching building simulation. All these topics may be addressed from urban scale to microscopic scale, and for different phases during the building life cycle; from schematic design, to detailed design to construction, commissioning, operation, control and maintenance of new and existing building.
