Article
Building energy simulation is a powerful tool for developing sustainable and low-emission urban built environments. The conventional simulation model relies on the climate conditions of the entire city that are measured by few weather stations. However, due to urban morphologies, natural conditions, and man-made structures, microclimate conditions...
Chapter
With rapid urbanization in past decades, the energy consumption of cities is climbing with accelerating speed. Buildings, as the major infrastructure in cities, consume the largest portions of annual produced energy. Therefore, understanding the energy-consuming dynamics of buildings is critical for decision-makers to propose feasible solutions to...
Article
Rapid urbanization on a global scale has shown temporal and spatial complexity in urban morphology. Urban planners, searching for effective analytical tools to understand changes in urban form and its relationship with other planning-related issues, often face two challenges – computational complexity derived from over-complicated patterns of moder...
Conference Paper
Buildings are the major energy consumer in cities. Understanding the energy dynamics in cities is the premise for urban system design and policymaking for large scale building retrofitting. Research developed various urban building energy simulation tools, however, due to computational complexity, city-scale simulations usually consume enormous com...
Article
As buildings account for a substantial amount of energy worldwide, many developers encourage self-sustained net-zero energy buildings (NZEBs) to minimize buildings’ energy consumption and negative impacts on the environment. In contrast to regular buildings, NZEBs have interactive and complex energy systems that require synthetical evaluation of th...
Article
Buildings consume the largest amount of energy in cities and simulating urban energy dynamics provides the most cost-effective references for urban building planning and energy policy-making. However, cities have a tremendous number of buildings and complicated physical/environmental conditions, current simulation models require formidable computat...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
This paper compares the vibration characteristics of the floating slab track with different base forms and proposes a method to comparatively improve the vibration reduction effect of the "integrated assembly" construction method. Firstly, the wheel-rail force of the train passing through the small radius curve section is obtained by the dynamic si...
