Application of Global Sensitivity Analysis of Model Output to Building Thermal Simulations

  title={Application of Global Sensitivity Analysis of Model Output to Building Thermal Simulations},
  author={Thierry Alex Mara and Stefano Tarantola},
In this paper is exposed a set of applications of global sensitivity analysis to building thermal modelling. The aim is to demonstrate the interest of such tools for model analysis and to encourage their use. Indeed, since the last ten years important improvements have been made in the field of sensitivity analysis and especially in ANOVA-based computational methods. Yet, their use in the field of building performance modelling is uncommon. After recalling the concept of ANOVAbased sensitivity… CONTINUE READING
