On the capture of polar indoor air pollutants at sub-ppm level— A molecular simulation study

Adsorption of polar molecules, such as formaldehyde, ammonia, and water, is profoundly affected by both the pore structure and the functional groups (FGs) of an adsorbent. Investigating the effects of pore structures and FGs separately is …

Experimental and numerical study of the airflow and thermal characteristic of non-uniform transpired solar collector

A transpired solar-collector is a device, which is attached to building walls, that uses solar energy to provide preheated fresh outdoor-air before it is drawn into the building through the ventilation system. A transpired collector consists of a …

Über diese Zeitschrift

Building Simulation: An International Journal publishes original, high quality, peer-reviewed research papers and review articles dealing with modeling and simulation of buildings including their systems. The goal is to promote the field of building science and technology to such a level that modeling will eventually be used in every aspect of building construction as a routine instead of an exception. Of particular interest are papers that reflect recent developments and applications of modeling tools and their impact on advances of building science and technology.

Paper submission is solicited for the following five fixed sections:

A: Building thermal, lighting, and acoustics modeling

B: Building systems and components

C: Indoor/outdoor airflow and air quality

D: Architecture and human behavior

E: Advances in modeling and simulation tools

The above scope will develop as the field of building simulation evolves. Authors are encouraged to contribute papers from different angles of interest, making Building Simulation: An International Journal a dynamic channel and valuable resource for new scientific findings and engineering applications.
