On the international level ISO (International Organization for Standardization), CEN (European Committee for Standardization) and ASHRAE (American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air Conditioning Engineers) are writing standards related to the indoor environment. This presentation will focus on the development of standards for the indoor thermal environment and indoor air quality. In the future, recommendations for acceptable indoor environments will be specified as classes. This allows…

Classification of thermal environments for comfort assessment.
TLDR
A classification scheme that allows thermal comfort assessment to be reliably performed in any environment and widens the options for simultaneously establishing comfort conditions for different individuals performing different tasks in the same area and clarifies whose comfort should be pursued with the highest priority.
Effects of vehicle air leakage ventilation rate on cabin indoor air quality
Due to the heavy traffic load in city areas, most drivers close the window completely and set the ventilation system to full recirculation mode in order to minimize the concentration of particle
A Framework for Automated Real-Time Performance Evaluation of Smart Buildings
TLDR
This thesis develops a framework featuring tools and methodologies for continuous evaluation of buildings’ performance in real-time, in new and existing buildings regardless of their type and available sensing instrumentation, and has been implemented as an ensemble of microservices.
Coordination of radiant floor and baseboard heating systems: Sequential and simultaneous MPC schemes
TLDR
Two novel model predictive control schemes are proposed for coordinating two different heating systems with fast and slow heating dynamics to improve the performance of a slow-reacting heating system in terms of maintaining the indoor operative temperature within predefined bounds while reducing the energy cost.

TLDR
The proposed mobile monitoring and support robot (MMSR), which maintains a residential environment to be comfortable, safe, and secure, is developed and tested to show the potential feasibility of MMSR concept.
Analysis of Natural Ventilation in a Passive House Located in Cold Conditions: a case study of Denmark
This article shows the potential of using natural ventilation as a passive method of cooling buildings that are located in cold climate countries using Denmark as a case study. The energy saving
Assessing thermal comfort of dwellings in summer using EnergyPlus
SUMMARY The simulation of a building as a whole offers an image of its behaviour, reflecting the complex relation established between the outdoor environment factors, the building characteristics,
