models at every engineer's fingertips
to the home page of ASHRAE Technical Committee 4.7. This technical
committee is concerned with identifying, evaluating, developing, and
recommending procedures for calculating energy performance of buildings.
TC 4.7 is currently responsible for Chapter 31 'Energy Estimating and
Modeling Methods' of the ASHRAE Fundamentals
has a number of sub-committees. These are:
and Component Models
and program items are normally dealt with by each of the sub-committees (except
Handbook) and recommended to the main TC.
TC 4.7 Standards
TC is responsible for the following standards:
Standard 140-2004: Standard
Method of Test for the Evaluation of Building Energy Analysis
Addenda can be downloaded at the following
link: Standard 140-2004: Addenda a & b (zip)
standard 'specifies test procedures for evaluating the technical
capabilities and ranges of applicability of computer programs that
calculate the thermal performance of buildings and their HVAC systems..
technical committees are organized into sections. TC 4.7 is part of
Section 4.0 Load
Calculations and Energy Requirements. The TCs in Section 4.0
