This book focuses on the most recent research work, softwares and relevant applications in the field of building performance simulation. The three-part book is a guide for those who are already envolved in this industry and prepared for a deep dive in various topics more cutting-edge and theoretical. Starting with introductions to basic math model like physical model and data-driven model theoretically, the book then briefs tools to fulfill the needs of various simulation tasks, concerning BIM application, parametric design and cloud compute supports... The third and the last part of the book goes deep into some buzz topics in this field: human behaviour in building operation, simulation assisted green building labeling, load prediction on urban scale, HVAC system simulation commisssioning, demand reponse, co-simulation, object-oriented simulation and so on. Cases are studied in conjunction with each method introduced.
