The Electronic Building Simulation Assistant – constructing building descriptions that computers comprehend
Authors: Donn, Michael
This paper describes the principal features of a design decision support tool to be used by building
designers. These features form the detailed conclusions to case study research of practitioners’
and consultants’ use of simulation. It posits a test that might be used for Quality Control in digital
simulation of building performance as a necessary adjunct to the widespread use of simulation in
design, particularly if it is to be used early in the design process.
