A much needed resource for new and aspiring members of the building science community

This new IBPSA-endorsed book, Fundamentals of Building Performance Simulation pares the theory and practice of a multi-disciplinary field to the essentials for classroom learning and real-world applications. Authored by a veteran educator and researcher, this textbook equips graduate students and emerging and established professionals in architecture and engineering to predict and optimize buildings’ energy use. Each subject is introduced without reference to particular modelling tools while practice problems at the end of each chapter provide hands-on experience with the tools of the reader’s choice. Curated reading lists orient beginners in a vast, cross-disciplinary literature and the critical thinking skills stressed throughout prepare them to make contributions of their own.
