ARCH 535 - Introduction to Proactive Simulation


Prerequisites: Graduate standing or Senior standing w/ permission of the instructor
The elective course is an introduction to building performance simulation (BPS) methods and tools. It is concerned with the proactive integration of BPS within the design process. The course will introduce the students to the workings of several software tools that complement each other in the area of energy, bulk air flow, and lighting simulation. The course also brings Integrated Project Delivery concepts and methods to bear and critically examines the role of project data management into emerging design methodologies. The course prepares students to think strategically when approaching modeling as a well as developing an ability to examine critically modeling outputs. The course is grounded in reality by also introducing on-site data acquisition and building post-occupancy evaluation techniques.
