Overview

The aim of this publication is to provide practical guidance in the delivery of thermal models and is based on feedback from practising engineers. It focuses on dynamic and compliance thermal modelling and not CFD simulation. The guide is available in pdf and new eBook format suitable for most mobile devices. Contact the BSRIA bookshop to obtain this publication in eBook format. Read more about the eBook here.

The development and preparation of thermal models for projects is now an integral part of the design process, in particular to demonstrate compliance with the Building Regulations. Project teams are increasingly being asked to commit to future energy use and thermal modelling is used in order to accurately predict future energy consumption. It is therefore important that the thermal models are subject to part of the quality review process in order that future disputes or claims do not arise as a result of any inaccuracies.

The guide provides an overview of the thermal modelling process with a high level strategic approach to quality requirements.
