About this journal

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.
