Building Performance Simulation:  What’s in the Black Box?


Over the last 50 years, building simulation has evolved into a powerful tool for evaluating the energy performance of potential or existing buildings. Building simulation allows easy comparison of the energy and environmental performance of many hundreds of design or retrofit options. This presentation provides an overview of building performance simulation fundamentals and history, Building Information Modeling, what’s in the black box of key simulation programs, as well as comparing underlying simulation methods. Because much of the data that building simulation tools require already exists in the BIM models, it’s critical that simple methods for sharing that data are available. This presentation also describes the opportunities and challenges for sharing data between BIM and SIM and demonstrates recent advances in data exchange.

CRC2019 - TRAINING
A Brief Look at IgCC and Standard 189.1


ASHRAE Standard 189.1-2018, Standard for the Design of High-Performance Green Buildings, now serves as the technical basis for the 2018 International Green Construction Code (IgCC). The IgCC provides the minimum requirements for the siting, design, construction, and plans for operations of a high-performance green building. The basic intent behind the IgCC was to provide a balance of factors involved with the design and operation of buildings. This session provides a brief overview of the technical content contained in the IgCC/ASHRAE Standard 189.1, with a focus on topics most relevant to the typical ASHRAE member.

CESBA MED (part1/2)
Sustainable MED Cities

Presentation of an open and harmonized sustainability assessment system for the built environment. Learn how to adapt the method and the tools to meet your local conditions and priorities, and use them for planning, implementing and monitoring sustainability measures. The event will present the applications in Croatia, France, Greece, Italy, Malta and Spain and focus on the Hellenic pilot; review the sustainability passports; demonstrate how to calculate the key performance indicators using numerical examples and the available e-Training material in Greek, and assess different scenarios. Participants will get a copy of the Hellenic version of the sustainable neighborhood tool and the simplified building tool. You may bring your own PC to use during the demonstration of the CESBA MED tool. Participants will receive a certificate of attendance. The event will be in Greek.

CESBA MED (https://cesba-med.interreg-med.eu) is part of the Interreg Mediterranean programme and co-financed by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).

Fire & Smoke Control

The ventilation of a building with the "eyes" of a firefighter

A comparative analysis of the new Building Fire Protection Regulation (PD 41/2018) with the old one regarding the issues of building ventilation.The Building Fire Regulation defines the requirements and measures in order to:

a) Protect the lives and health in the event of a fire.
b) To prevent the fire from spreading to other areas of the building.
c) To prevent the fire from spreading to neighboring areas.
d) Protect the buildings themselves and their contents.

The primary objective of the Building Fire Protection Regulation remains the safety of the public in the event of a fire occurring, by appropriate design, installation of active means and systems, and appropriate selection of materials and equipment. Specifically:
1) All measures to protect the building from fire collapse...
2) Minimum escape route design requirements...
3) The maximum permitted sizes in which buildings must be separated into fire compartments...
4) Measures that prevent the transmission of fire from a building to its neighbours...
5) Requirements of materials used in buildings ...
6) Active fire protection measures and systems...
