THERM: Models two-dimensional heat-transfer effects
in building components such as windows, walls,
foundations, roofs, and doors. It is useful where thermal
bridges are of concern.
Berkeley Lab WINDOW: Calculates thermal and solaroptical performance of window and shading systems.
Occupant Behavior Modeling
Non-Routine-Variability Gem: An OpenStudio
extension gem for modeling realistic building
obXML Occupant Behavior XML: An XML schema
to standardize the representation and exchange of
occupant behavior models.
obFMU Occupant Behavior FMU: A functional mockup
unit (FMU) featuring occupant behaviors that can
co-simulate with building simulation tools such as
Occupancy Simulator: A web-based tool to simulate
occupant presence and movement in buildings using
an agent-based Markov Chain model. The simulator
produces occupant schedules at the room- and
individual-occupant level that can be used in building
Occupant-Variability Gem: An OpenStudio extension
gem for modeling occupancy and occupant-driven loads
