Green buildings-thermal comfort and energy consumption

The objective of this Industrial CASE PhD project is to develop novel mathematical models for the prediction of thermal comfort and energy consumption in green buildings. Wall heat transfers for buoyancy driven flows will be investigated experimentally in order to develop and validate theoretical models. These will then be incorporated into current dynamic thermal models to improve the accuracy of energy calculations in comfort studies.

 

Project staff and support
Jamie Partridge (Postgraduate Associate, University of Cambridge)
Paul Linden (Academic supervisor, University of Cambridge)

This project is being carried out at the University of Cambridge, in conjunction with Arup. It is supported by an EPSRC industrial CASE award, made available through the Knowledge Transfer Network for Industrial Mathematics. Start date: October 2010; duration: 3.5 years.

Tim, thanks for this connection. I'll be meeting with this project in early May 2011 and will draw this ETI activity to their attention. Melvin
