Visioning Energy: Environmental Simulation, Visualization and the Instrumental Nature of Energy

May 18, 2016

This paper explores how advances in computation are producing a growing range of virtual tools used in the modeling, simulation, and visualization of thermal and environmental flows and how these emerging technologies have given rise to new methods of evaluating building performance, altered the economics of lifecycle and resource management, and problematized the traditional metrics of thermal comfort.
