Thermal Analysis Visualization Tool 1.0 Alpha 1

A sequence of Energy simulation tools were adopted to analyse the thermal performance of an office building. While Design Builder was the preferred choice for building geometry and setting up the necessary parameters for affecting a Thermal Analysis, Energy Plus was the engine used to simulate the performance.

The ability to simulate performance is more often undermined by the lack of tools that facilitate a clear and efficient analysis of the data outputted. Hence a custom visualization tool was built in Processing, that allows users to plugin  simulation data from Energy Plus. The tool presents a series of interactive graphic displays of the energy performance for the target space. This would allow a user to comprehend the complexity of simulation results with much ease and facilitates a clear understanding of the performative potential of the building. The current version is the first in the development of this tool and possibly, a couple of iterations down, a much wider repertoire of interactions will be facilitated.
