Article
Full-text available
Occupants’ attitudes and behavior have a significant influence on energy and water consumption in buildings. To provide more robust solutions, energy efficient applications should consider occupant-building interaction. However, there is a question to be answered: which aspects of lodging and occupant behavior cause the most substantial increase in...
Conference Paper
The paper presents airtightness measurements results of the multi-family building. The tests were carried out in several ways, the results obtained by different methods were compared and the likely reasons for the discrepancy of results were indicated. The object of measurements was a six storey building with 47 dwellings equipped with natural vent...
Article
Full-text available
The paper describes the concept of DomTrzon which means ‘ecological house’. Measurements carried out in the existing building are presented. Based on this data the building envelope model assumptions are verified. A simplified model of a wood-lag accumulation stove (NunnaUuni) is proposed. The indoor thermal comfort and the building’s final energy...
Article
Full-text available
International Energy Agency has established the Energy in Buildings and Communities Program (EBC). The Program’s aim is investigation of energy related issues in building industry. EBC Program consists of Annexes that are established to carry out research on specific subject problems. The paper presents one of the newest Annex 66: Definition and Si...
Presentation
Full-text available
The aim of presentation is the first step to propose modeling framework for occupant - building interaction in the context of control and adjustment of heating/cooling and ventilation systems in residential buildings.
Article
Full-text available
Occupant-centric building design and operation has attracted recent research efforts in many countries, as building occupants are being more recognized as the main drivers in planning and operating safe, comfortable, energy-efficient indoor environments. In this matter, the role of building managers and operators is crucial to capture the needs of...
Article
Full-text available
Buildings are expected to provide healthy and comfortable indoor environmental conditions for their users. Such conditions have diverse dimensions, including thermal, visual, air quality, auditory, and olfactory aspects. Indoor environmental quality standards, guidelines, and codes typically inform professionals in the building design and operation...
Article
Full-text available
The form, attractiveness, functionality, and exterior appearance of buildings have been important considerations in architecture for centuries. Large common spaces, sharing of daylight, and the use of large glazing are also important. Combining many of these factors, buildings with atriums form a focal point, create a social meeting place, and cont...
Article
The number of occupancy and occupant behaviour models developed for building performance simulation (BPS) has steadily increased for the past four decades. However, their use is still limited in practice. This is partly due to the difficulty in understanding their utility and to the challenges related to their implementation into BPS. Both problems...
Article
Full-text available
This paper introduces a database of 34 field-measured building occupant behavior datasets collected from 15 countries and 39 institutions across 10 climatic zones covering various building types in both commercial and residential sectors. This is a comprehensive global database about building occupant behavior. The database includes occupancy patte...
Article
Full-text available
Methods for determining the energy performance of buildings should be verified so that they can be an effective tool in the process of developing energy-efficient solutions and be helpful in shaping energy policy. This paper compares the set of calculated values from the Polish Central Energy Performance of Buildings Registry with the values measur...
Article
This article is a comment by the authors on the use of the (Polish) Methodology for reporting energy performance of a building or parts of a building and energy performance certificates in the context of the needs arising from the ongoing energy transformation. The authors signal the need for continuous, systematic verification and development of t...
Thesis
The increasing consumption of fossil fuel energy has led to resource constraints and climate change. This in turn has motivated intensive research into reducing the energy intensity of processes and increasing the possibilities of renewable energy sources usage. This type of research is also being carried out in the field of broadly defined buildin...
Article
Indoor environmental quality (IEQ) plays a key role in determining occupants’ productivity at work; however, the analyses in the interconnected factors among building physical, attitudinal, social and demographic components in one study are lacking. To link this research gap, this study investigates these interconnected factors’ influence on occupa...
Article
Full-text available
Hot and dry climate and air pollution is a growing problem in urban areas, and this can have an adverse impact on life and health of urban residents. One of the ways to protect people from this hazard is the use of urban green or street greenery. However, its implementation can be problematic in highly urbanized areas. This paper presents a concept...
Article
This study investigates human-building interaction in office spaces across multiple countries including Brazil, Italy, Poland, Switzerland, the United States, and Taiwan. We analyze social-psychological, contextual, and demographic factors to explain crosscountry differences in adaptive thermal actions (i.e. cooling and heating behaviors) and confo...
Article
Full-text available
Thermally Activated Building Systems (TABS) are a way to use building structure as a thermal energy storage. As a result, renewable energy sources may be used more efficiently. The paper presents numerical analysis of a HVAC system with TABS energy demand and indoor thermal comfort of a representative room in a non-residential building (governmenta...
Article
The paper presents preliminary simulation analysis of stochastic internal heat gains influence on multifamily buildings energy balance. Both existing and energy efficient object have been considered. Three stochastic algorithms have been investigated in different building cases, cases differ: energy efficient standard, envelope heat capacity, flats...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper refers to conceptual design of the dwelling using performance simulation software. TRNSYS and TRNFlow are used to create models of the building, respectively: thermal and multizone airflow model. The dynamic simulation, with changing boundary conditions during hourly, daily, weekly and yearly simulation cycles, is possible using these co...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Night-time ventilation is a promising approach for reducing the energy needed for cooling buildings without reducing thermal comfort. The objective of this paper is to determine how an internal obstacle, such as a table, will influence the heat transfer in the room and the efficiency of night-time ventilation which uses displacement ventilation. Ex...

Question
I would like to test potential of ice block as PCM for cooling purpose. Because I am familiar with TRNSYS and it is quite flexible I am looking for some model that has been implemented in this software or could be easy implemented (equation, new type...)
Question
It seems to me that researchers use two terms in literature: neutral and comfort in the context of thermal comfort, human body thermoregulation etc. Is there any difference? Is PMV=0 neutral and comfort, or only neutral and comfort depend on PPD / preferences?
Question
Is it true that survival analisis is memoryless process becouse it dosen't depend on time (INPUT), it only predict time (OUTPUT)?
Question
I mean, does heat transfer coefficient will be the same in the same condition but for surface with different materials (e.g. glass and concrete)?

Cel badania: W ramach tego badania chcemy poznać, jakimi informacjami pracownicy budynków biurowych byliby skłonni się dzielić oraz na jakich warunkach są gotowi to robić w celu poprawy warunków komfortu i efektywności energetycznej budynku. Nie zbieramy żadnych danych biometrycznych, a jedynie badamy postawy do dzielenia się nimi. Aby wziąć udział, wystarczy kliknąć w poniższy link: https://southampton.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_cNHfs23rig0CaKa?Q_Language=PL Badanie jest częścią międzynarodowego projektu koordynowanego przez Międzynarodową Agencję Energii (IEA EBC Annex 79 Subtask 1) poświęconego projektowaniu i eksploatacji budynków zorientowanych na użytkowników. Liderem projektu jest prof. Marcel Schweiker.
