Building Modelling & Simulation
Building Modeling & Simulation: Daylight and Thermal Comfort
Using building modelling and simulation early on in the design stages can influence design decisions for the better. This course highlights the short payback period of using modelling software on projects, and lists a range of questions which can be answered by means of simulations. It also covers two important topics related to improved Indoor Environmental Quality, namely designing for daylight and thermal comfort in offices.
1. Understand the role of building modelling and Simulation during the design of a building
2. Describe the key components of the building that can be influenced with building modelling and simulations
3. Discuss the benefits of using building simulation in building design
4. Identify different modelling Software to be used on a project
