calculation

The Commission is in the process of updating some of the content on this website in light of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union. If the site contains content that does not yet reflect the withdrawal of the United Kingdom, it is unintentional and will be addressed.

It allows calculating the loads and room temperatures taking into account the thermal characteristics of the components as well as their in stationary response (adiabatic/non-adiabatic). The method, then, also allows assessing the thermal and building-physical properties of rooms and buildings. The guideline limits itself to the specification of the calculation core. Further algorithms are only addressed insofar as their description requires further specification in order to achieve comparability of the results.

The energetic behavior of modern transparent facades becomes accessible to simulation and tables for cooling-load calculations can be established. The method uses five solid layers but can, in principle, calculate any number of solid layers. Tabulated values for cooling-load calculations are given for six selected glass combinations, and standard values for three different systems of two-layer facades.For information on VDI, please visit www.vdi.eu.

Dear members,The project to prepare the second generation of CEN standards, to support the recast EPBD, started a few months ago on the basis of a new mandate from the European Commission to CEN (M/480).Because of the wide interest in this project we, the community facilitators in consultation with the BUILDUP management team, have decided for the coming years to focus the information exchange in the community “EPBD calculation procedures” on the activities in this project.As a first step we adapted the title and description of the community to the new focus.
