Automated generation of nodal representations for complex building geometries in the SEMPER environment
Automation in Construction 10 (1) (2000) pp. 141-153
Conventional CAD systems rarely provide automated conversion of general building design representations (BDR) into the simulation domain representations (SDR) required for various detailed simulations. The Simulation Environment for Modeling Performance (SEMPER) project has demonstrated such an automated mapping for buildings with orthogonal geometries. This paper further illustrates automated mapping for buildings with complex (non-orthogonal) geometry.
