title Thermal Performance Associated with Materials in Early Stages of the Design Process
source Martens, B, Wurzer, G, Grasl T, Lorenz, WE and Schaffranek, R (eds.), Real Time - Proceedings of the 33rd eCAADe Conference - Volume 1, Vienna University of Technology, Vienna, Austria, 16-18 September 2015, pp. 325-331
summary This work is part of a research on decision-making processes in architecture involving computer programs in the early stages of designing the building envelope. The research involves two steps: (1) intuitive processes analysis during the handling of the building envelope components - floor, roof, walls, windows, solar protection elements - and (2) generative processes analysis of building envelopes supported by performance models. This article is the first step, analyzing four housing prototypes, designed and built for the Solar Decathlon competition. First, the building envelope elements and thermal characteristics of these prototypes were modeled; then different materials that make up the envelope were tested, aimed at assessing thermal performance against the modifications proposed in six different scenarios. The results showed that it is possible to obtain intuitive solutions that equalize temperature changes in the early stages of design with computing environments even without the use of detailed data on the characteristics of buildings, features of the later stages of the project.
