Introduction of openstudio® for work integrated learning: Case study on building energy modelling
MetadataShow full item record
© Springer Nature Singapore Pte Ltd. 2017. Work integrated learning (WIL) is an innovative teaching pedagogy integrating industrial practical experience with academic learning experience. This paper presents an introduction of OpenStudio® as tool for modelling and simulating building energy. OpenStudio® is an open source building energy software for conducting thermal and energy balance simulation on buildings, with inclusion of weather effects, wind speeds and directions. Hence, a good approximate model on the interactions of the actual environment can be modelled. An industrial collaborative educational case study is presented in this work for the learners’ WIL experience. Preliminary results showed promising use of OpenStudio® for modelling and simulating building energy performance.
