AUTOMATICMODEL REDUCTION IN ARCHITECTURE: AWINDOWINTO BUILDING THERMAL STRUCTURE
Justin R. Dobbs, Brandon M. Hencey
Reducing building model complexity is currently a heuristic process requiring experience and skill; little progress has been made toward a numerical framework to automate this process. This paper proposes integrating automaticmodel reduction into the design process using a transparentmodel abstraction. Resistor-capacitor network analysis, mapped appropriately to a building information model, can provide the architect with insight into thermal coupling among building elements. Experimental results demonstrate the use of model aggregation to reduce sim- ulation time without significant loss of accuracy
