Indentation response of a 3D non-woven carbon-fibre composite
(Cambridge University Press, 2018-01-16)
The indentation response of a 3D noninterlaced composite comprising three sets of orthogonal carbon-fibre tows in an epoxy matrix is investigated. The 3D composites have a near isotropic and ductile indentation response. ...
Simulation of thermosyphon solar hot water systems using Matlab/Simulink and Carnot
The paper describes the use of the Carnot blockset to simulate the performance of solar heating systems.
Simulation-based optimisation of a newly developed system controller for solar cooling and heating systems
The paper describes the development of a new supervisory control system for solar heating and cooling plant
Simulation of the operation of a climatic wind tunnel
(Professional Engineering Publishing, 2002)
The climatic wind tunnel (CWT) is a facility which is widely used in vehicle and component manufacturing to reduce product development times. In view of the wide range of temperatures, humidities and wind speeds required ...
Modelling, simulation and optimisation of utility–service provision for households: case studies
(Procedia Engineering, Elsevier, 2013-09-04)
In the research presented in this paper household case studies were considered. Main objective of this research is to investigate models and algorithms for alternative approaches to current utility–service provision. This ...
Optimization of dwelling design under current and future climates using evolutionary algorithms in EnergyPlus
Designers of low energy dwellings face many challenges in making best use of space, and providing day lit and pleasant spaces, while minimising heat loss and overall carbon emissions to meet various environmental and ...
Modelling and simulation of water distribution systems with quantised state system methods
The work in this paper describes a study of quantised state systems in order to formulate a new framework within which water distribution systems can be modelled and simulated. In contrast to the classic time-slicing ...
Navigating multi-dimensional results from large parametric building simulation studies
Advances in computing in recent years allow for many thousands of building energy simulations to be computed in the time previously required for a single simulation run. Software tools exist that allow for a single input ...
Objective selection of minimum acceptable mesh refinement for electromagnetic simulation
Optimization of computational electromagnetics (EM) simulation models can be costly in both time and computing resource. Mesh refinement is a key parameter in determining the number of unknowns to be processed, which, in ...
