Open Access research with a real impact on health...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the Physical Activity for Health Group based within the School of Psychological Sciences & Health. Research here seeks to better understand how and why physical activity improves health, gain a better understanding of the amount, intensity, and type of physical activity needed for health benefits, and evaluate the effect of interventions to promote physical activity.

Abstract

To facilitate multi-variate performance appraisal all aspects of a building must be treated simultaneously. This paper gives examples of how the principal technical domains relating to a building's environmental performance are coupled within the ESP-r integrated simulation package. Essentially, the equation-sets defining each domain are processed by customised solvers, while the domain interactions are handled by ensuring that the equation-sets for a given domain are established and solved as a function of information defining the evolution of any coupled domains. An earlier version of this paper appears in the proceedings of Building Simulation'99 [J.A. Clarke, Proc. Building Simulation'99, 1999] [1].
