Designing Zero Carbon Buildings Using Dynamic Simulation Methods, Second Edition

by Ljubomir Jankovic


Designing Zero Carbon Buildings Using Dynamic Simulation Methods, Second Edition

In addition to the application of fundamental principles that lead to a structured method for zero carbon design of buildings, this considerably expanded second edition includes new advanced topics on multi-objective optimisation; reverse modelling; reduction of the simulation performance gap; predictive control; nature-inspired emergent simulation leading to sketches that become ‘alive’; and an alternative economics for achieving the sustainability paradigm. The book features student design work from a Master’s programme run by the author, and their design speculation for a human settlement on Mars. Tasks for simple simulation experiments are available for the majority of topics, providing the material for classroom exercise and giving the reader an easy introduction into the field. Extended new case studies of zero carbon buildings are featured in the book, including schemes from Japan, China, Germany, Denmark and the UK, and provide the reader with an enhanced design toolbox to stimulate their own design thinking.

Review

"A clear and well researched user-orientated perspective on the latest zero carbon building design practice and software tools, this engaging book guides the reader through the basics before discussing current best practice techniques. High points are a structured application of the latest multi-objective design optimisation tools and a vision of how some promising new building materials and analysis techniques are likely to be applied in the future. Look out for advice not seen elsewhere such as interoperability between energy modelling tools." - Dr Andy Tindale, Manging Director, DesignBuilder Software
