EVENTS AND WEBINARS
A JOINT CIBSE BUILDING SIMULATION GROUP AND IBPSA-ENGLAND EVENT ON ‘ESTIMATING AIRBORNE INFECTION THROUGH SIMULATION AND ANALYSIS’ – PART 1
|Climate change will have significant impacts on the built environment due to the increased frequency and severity of heatwaves, floods and drought. The ambient temperature increase will impact indoor thermal conditions, space conditioning loads and associated costs and health effects across building stocks. Many buildings may not be fit for the future climate; appreciable energy efficiency improvements are still required to meet carbon emissions reduction targets for the building sector, whilst adapting buildings that are in their majority currently unprepared to cope with a warming climate. It is, therefore, imperative that the quality, design and operation of buildings is optimised in order to increase their climate resilience whilst simultaneously reducing fuel poverty and associated health inequalities.
This webinar will explore building performance simulation methods, tools and datasets that could be employed to assess the impact of climate change on building performance, with a focus on indoor environmental conditions and energy use, and the optimisation of climate change adaptation solutions.
The built environment sector has been impacted heavily by the COVID-19 pandemic. The ventilation of buildings has been identified as one of the most important measures for mitigating the spread of COVID-19 and had thus become part of the international COVID-19 management strategy.
The event will showcase UK and international examples of the use of ventilation modelling and simulation within research and practical applications that have: contributed to our understanding of how COVID-19 has impacted our spaces; supported the formulation of recommendations and policy on mitigating it’s spread and making buildings ‘COVID-safe’;
|Digital Twin technology is an emerging concept that has become the centre of attention for industry and, in more recent years, academia. The Digital Twin is defined extensively but is best described as the effortless integration of data between a physical and virtual machine in either direction. It can tackle the challenge of seamless integration between IoT and data analytics through the creation of a connected physical and virtual twin. This webinar will present some of the latest knowledge and developments in this area with speakers from academia and industry discussing the role of Digital Twinning in the built environment.
Heat pumps have an important role in decarbonising in both domestic and non-domestic contexts. This joint IBPSA-England, CIBSE Building Simulation Group and CIBSE HVAC Group webinar focus on Heat Pumps in Non-Domestic Context. Program:
About this event: This webinar will explore the application of building performance simulation in improving indoor environmental conditions in care homes.
