The third webinar of the series is to be held jointly by Charles ‘Chip’ Barnaby and Drury B Crawley. Chip Barnaby, the President of IBPSA is a graduate from Harvard University and did his Post graduation in Architecture from University of California. Drury Crawley, Chair of Regional Affiliate Development Committee of IBPSA is a graduate from University of Tennessee and did his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of Strathclyde, Scotland. He is now Fellow and Director of Building Performance at Bentley systems, Washington. The upcoming webinar will describe the weather data requirements of Building Performance Simulation (BPS) applications, how those data are represented and available data sources. They will also talk about how ongoing development of remote sensing (satellite) observations and climate modelling methods are improving data availability and quality

The fifth webinar will be presented by Jeff Spitler, Regents Professor and OG&E Energy Technology Chair of mechanical engineering at Oklahoma State University. Prof. Spitler is a fellow of ASHRAE and IBPSA, and a past president of IBPSA. This webinar will give an overview of what’s at the very heart of building simulation: simulation of the building envelope and heat transfer within individual zones.

The webinar provides an overview on human thermoregulation, thermal sensation and comfort perception. Influence factors and performance indicators for the assessment of thermal comfort in uniform and non-uniform environments are summarized. Comfort modeling and its use within the simulation environment is discussed at diverse levels of detail. We close the topic with the development and test of a new thermophysiological model implemented in the acausal modeling language Modelica. In this regard, we introduce a new type of comfort assessment system that can be used for the real-time assessment of local thermal comfort.

​This webinar, a repeat of a keynote talk that was given at IBPSA-England’s Building Simulation and Optimization 2016 conference, makes the case for why the world needs building simulation. It then describes what we as a community need to do to rise to the challenge, and argues the need for reforming the ways in which we teach BPS.
