This case study was developed for a large metal panel company that specializes in designing custom building envelope systems. This video demonstrates the integration of 3D laser scanning with custom fabrication and as-built conditions.
We are remodeling a 1920’s building in Detroit and want to focus on utilizing passive design for our energy needs, so every detail of the design is important. This video gives a short overview of our ideas for the building envelope: the floors, walls and roof, and how they interconnect.
Don’t let the problems even start in your existing home!! Air quality problems are often connected to water problems. What kind of proper precautions should you take? Mark from Sustainable Energy Analytics tells us.
Kagoshima Bay, located southern Kyushu, Japan, has sometimes oceanic water intrusions. Water quality in the bay should be affected by this phenomenon. Relatively simple numerical simulation was carried out to estimate intruding pattern. With Coriolis effect and topographic effect, intrusion pattern along the east side coast quickly was simulated. The pattern almost agree with satellite images.
