title VBFRED-IVY: The development of a computational tool to model the thermal performance of plants on buildings in the Singapore climate
source CAADRIA 2001 [Proceedings of the Sixth Conference on Computer Aided Architectural Design Research in Asia / ISBN 1-86487-096-6] Sydney 19-21 April 2001, pp. 159-169
summary This paper reports the development of VBFRED-IVY, a computational tool that is used to model and analyze the thermal effects of plants on buildings under Singapore climatic conditions. In VBFRED-IVY, the vegetation-air temperature and surface temperature of a planted wall and a non-planted wall are investigated respectively. Climatic data of Singapore are input to do the parametric testing. Then field measurements are carried on three planted walls in different orientations, and statistics method is applied to evaluate the simulation program. The results show that VBFRED-IVY is efficient.
