Abstract

We review the state-of-the-art on the development and application of computer-aided building simulation by addressing some crucial questions in the field. Although the answers are not intended to be comprehensive, they are sufficiently varied to provide an overview ranging from the historical and technical development to choosing a suitable simulation program and performing building simulation. Popular icons of major interested agencies and simulation tools and key information sources are highlighted. Future trends in the design and operation of energy-efficient ‘green' buildings are briefly described.
