Description

Overall, holistic approach in which the building is integrated into its environment with respect to building physics principles allows for discussion of a variety of passive strategies regarding the building placement (local climatic conditions, microclimate etc.), building types, building materials and technical systems. Bioclimatic design is referred to as a proper approach to highlight the connection of a building with the natural environment, which can be treated as the prerequisite for energy efficient design. The research results within the reliability studies of building performance become an inspiration for architects and engineers to further discuss tools supporting decisions at the early stage of design process from the reliability perspective. The bioclimatic tools allowing for interpretation of the sense of comfort as a variable dependent on the variability of climatic conditions, and human factors are suggested for the analysis at the early stage of building design. A framework for the probabilistic analysis of comfort performance to be included in bioclimatic design tools is proposed. The uncertainty of the variables and unknown parameters are critically (qualitatively) examined. Further research is needed to quantify the uncertainty of the boundaries of the comfort caused by the variability of climatic conditions and the uncertainty of human perception of comfort.

Bioclimatic tools for sustainable design – uncertainty perspective

Syracuse, NY

Overall, holistic approach in which the building is integrated into its environment with respect to building physics principles allows for discussion of a variety of passive strategies regarding the building placement (local climatic conditions, microclimate etc.), building types, building materials and technical systems.
