An Integrated Platform for Building Performance Analysis Using Grasshopper

Apr 06, 2015

This paper describes a prototype tool that can serve as a platform to merge large amounts of building performance simulation data with various performance criteria. A case study is described using the tool where the heat and moisture performance of different wall assemblies are evaluated in parallel. The results are linked to a process that aims to quantify the range of uncertainty surrounding the results, so that the user is able to guide the choice of design parameters in a more accurate manner.
