BLDG-SIM MAILING LIST
The mailing lists have moved to ONEBUILDING.ORG
The new instructions on how to subscribe or unsubscribe are here.
BLDG-SIM is a mailing list for users of building energy simulation programs. Building energy simulation programs allow users to estimate the energy use and operating cost of residential, commercial and other types of buildings. This allows engineers, architects and others in the building design trade to compare alternative designs and select the design that is cost justified. They are frequently used during the design process when choosing between alternatives in the components that make up a building including insulation level, heating and cooling distribution systems, furnaces, boilers and air conditioning equipment. The web page for this mailing list is located at:
Examples of building simulation programs include DOE-2, EnergyPlus, Trace-600, HAP, Blast, ESP, SERIRES, TRNSYS, TASE, Energy-10, and others (see link below for a more complete list).
Since the users of building energy simulation programs are spread across the world, this mailing list is an attempt to foster the development of a community of those users. Experienced and inexperienced users of building energy simulation programs are welcome and are expected to share their questions and insights about these programs.
Currently no FAQ is available.
Building Simulation Weather Data Resources - Based on a number of questions posted to the list on weather data for building energy simulation software we have put together.
An archive of all posts to the mailing list is located at the following URLs. The first URL is sorted by thread (i.e. topic) and the second is sorted by date. These on line archives were created by MHonArc.http://www.gard.com/ml/bldg-sim-archive/threads.html
