Product Description This book introduces recent advances in building simulation and outlines its historic development. Two important topics are described: uncertainty in simulation and coupled simulations, which are both closely linked to attempts to improve control and accuracy. This is followed by coverage of wind simulations and predictions, and then by an introduction to current systems and phenomenological modelling. Written by leading experts in the field both in the US and Europe, Advanced Building Simulation is an excellent graduate-level student textbook as well as a practical guide for architects, engineers and other construction professionals. About the Author Ali Malkawi is an associate professor of Architecture at the University of Pennsylvania. He teaches architectural technology and computation and conducts research in the areas of computational simulation, building performance predictions, optimization and advanced visualization. Godfried Augenbroe is an associate professor at the College of Architecture, Georgia Institute of Technology. He teaches courses in building science themes and conducts research in the fields of building performance concepts and simulation, control of smart systems and building monitoring and diagnostics.
