New Tools for the Analysis and Design of Building Envelopes
This paper describes the integrated development of PowerDOE, a new version of the DOE-2 building energy analysis program with enhanced calculation capabilities and a new graphical user interface, and the Building Design Advisor (BDA), a multimedia-based design tool that assists building designers with the concurrent consideration of multiple design solutions with respect to multiple design criteria early in schematic design. Each of these tools allows faster and more accurate analysis of the thermal and daylighting impacts of fenestration options.
