AbstractThere is a continuous dynamic heat, air and moisture (HAM) interaction between the indoor environment, building envelope and mechanical systems. In spite of these interdependences, the current indoor, building envelope and energy analysis tools are used independently. In this paper a holistic HAM model that integrates building envelope enclosures, indoor environment, HVAC systems, and indoor heat and moisture generation mechanisms, and solves simultaneously for the respective design parameters is developed. The model is benchmarked with internationally published test cases that require simultaneous prediction of indoor environmental conditions, building envelope moisture performance and energy efficiency of a building.
