Special Issue: Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design

SIMULATION: Transactions of The Society for Modeling and Simulation International (SAGE)


This special issue celebrates five annual SimAUD (Simulation for Architecture and Urban Design) Symposia held as part of the SpringSim conferences. Nine original articles are included in this special issue, covering a broad spectrum of theory and case studies of simulation applied to the built environment. The authors, researchers and practitioners, as well as architects and engineers, were selected from among the top contributors of SimAUD. Their papers are on the cusp of leading research and practice in the field of simulation for architecture and urban design.

    Buildings are the largest consumers of energy responsible for 48% of all Green House Gas (GHG) emissions. Due to the complexity and multidisciplinary aspects of architectural design, construction, urban design, and building occupant behavior, simulation has gained attention as a means of addressing this enormous challenge. The idea is to model a building’s many interacting subsystems, including its occupants, electrical equipment, and indoor and outdoor climate. With simulation results in hand, an architect is better able to predict the energy demand associated with various designs, and choose from among the more sustainable options.
