Description
  • As part of the Domus - whole-building hygrothermal simulation program - development team. I worked on several fronts, including the correction of errors and the implementation of new features such as: EnergyPlus projects importing, RTQ-C thermal performance plugin, heat transfer models, Form Factor and OpenGL interface enhancements.

Article
In the design context of Near-Zero Energy Buildings (nZEBs) and smart cities, robust and versatile optimization methods are needed to be coupled to simulation tools. In this way, the paper presents optimization algorithms coupled to a software with a capability to precisely simulate solar radiation availability by using a graphical pixel counting t...
Article
A two-dimensional model is proposed for energy efficiency assessment through the simulation of heat transfer in building envelopes, considering the influence of the surrounding environment. The model is based on the Du Fort–Frankel approach that provides an explicit scheme with a relaxed stability condition. The model is first validated using an an...

Building Energy Simulation (BES) tools commonly use 1-D formulation for computing conductions loads through building envelopes. As this assumption may cause significant errors on the prediction of building energy and thermal performance, this work proposes a methodology for taking into account the 3-D heat transfer phenomenon nature and compare the...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
A new Building and Environment Simulation Platform (BESP) has been conceived to be an advanced multidimensional simulation platform for fast and accurate assessment of energy and hygrothermal performance of building elements, buildings and building communities by means of an intelligent co-simulation approach among building energy simulation tools...
Article
One possibility to improve the accuracy of building performance simulation (BPS) tools is via co-simulation techniques, where more accurate mathematical models representing particular and complex physical phenomena are employed through data exchanging between the BPS and a specialized software where those models are available. This article performs...
Article
A computational procedure known as co-simulation has been proposed in the literature as a possibility to extend the capabilities and improve the accuracy of building performance simulation (BPS) tools. Basically, the strategy relies on the data exchanging between the BPS and a specialized software, where specific physical phenomena are simulated mo...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Bringing advanced physics to building performance simulation (BPS) tools, by means of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) coupling, may enable significant improvement of accuracy on the prediction of energy consumption, thermal comfort, pollutant transport and mold growth risk. One of the challenges on coupling is the communication between whole-bui...
Article
Innovative and efficient ways to carry out numerical simulations are worth of investigation to reduce the computational complexity of building models and make it possible to solve complex problems. This paper presents a reduced order model, based on Proper Generalised Decomposition (PGD), to assess 2-dimensional heat and moisture transfer in walls....
Conference Paper
Full-text available
The need for accurate results in building energy simulations has stimulated the present work in order to develop a specific heat transfer through vitreous surfaces calculation software. The Vitreous - LST was carried out to determine in a more precise way the heat gain from sunlight in vitreous surfaces. The software is able to estimate the heat ab...
