title SonoranSystems: Building Simulation Modeling Using a Crassulacean Acid Metabolism Analogy
source ACADIA 09: reForm( ) - Building a Better Tomorrow [Proceedings of the 29th Annual Conference of the Association for Computer Aided Design in Architecture (ACADIA) ISBN 978-0-9842705-0-7] Chicago (Illinois) 22-25 October, 2009), pp. 216-225
summary Biomimicry is one source of inspiration for innovation in the passive thermal design of buildings and of strategies that decrease the need for auxiliary heating and cooling systems. This paper explores the potential for using analogies drawn from Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) to create a software program that simulates selected building materials to predict temporal building temperature variations.
