Overview

"The book introduces recent trends in building simulation and outlines its historic development. The book then takes the reader on a journey into three major areas of investigation: simulation with uncertainty; combined air and heat flow in whole buildings, in particular the applications of Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) to the built environment; and the introduction of new paradigms for the effective use of building simulation, including issues of integration and potentially very significant ways for users to interact and to engage in immersed simulation." Leading experts in the field both in the US and Europe have written the chapters. The book provides a graduate-level student textbook as well as a guide to advanced methods for architects, engineers and other construction professionals.
