After 5 very successful editions of the Summer School on “Dynamic methods for whole building energy assessment” this time the focus will be on pragmatic application of these dynamic calculation techniques. For the practical exercises the software tool LORD will be applied on benchmark data as well as routines in the R-environment.
When and where?
The venue for the Summer School is for the second time in Granada, at the Escuela Técnica Superior de Arquitectura de la Universidad de Granada and takes place from Monday 3 until Friday 7 July, 2017.
Detailed information about the presented topics can be found in the announcement that can be downloaded from here. The cost for the week-long Summer School is 400 Euro.
Registration for the Summer School is closed. Next Summer School will take place in June 2018.
The main purpose of this summer school is to train a methodology for evaluation of measured data. Five enthusiastic lecturers will teach methodologies in more than 10 presentations for assessing the heat transfer characteristics of building envelopes as well as whole building using data for hands-on exercises. During the summer course, information on relevant software will be given and software tools will be used in the exercises. See also www.dynastee.info. In the document Software techniques applied to thermal performance characteristics some further information about methods and tools is given as well as on benchmark data for testing these methods.

Another successful Summer School on Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Assessment has taken place from 19-24 June, 2016 in lovely and inviting Granada, Spain.
A record number of 34 participants from all over the world gathered at the Civil Engineering School, University of Granada, nearby the famous Alhambra, to get trained in methodologies for assessment of building energy performance. Participants came from Japan, China, South-Korea, Mexico, Canada, Lebanon and from 14 European countries. Most of them were PhD or post-doc students and many are involved in IEA-EBC projects.
The event was opened by Professor Montserrat Zamorano Toro, director of the Civil Engineering School of the University of Granada. Many thanks go to her Department as well as to Professor Diego Pablo Ruiz Padillo of the Applied Physics School. The introductory presentation was made by Paul Baker, invited speaker and expert on in-situ measurements and analysis. He showed the importance and practical side of carrying out experimental work on site to collect proper data for analysis…more

For the 3rd consecutive year, DYNASTEE is organising with collaboration of universities, national research organisations and industry, a Summer School on the topic of Dynamic Calculation Methods for Building Energy Assessment.
Today, more and more data related to building and building components originate from outdoor testing under time-varying and dynamic conditions, or from real life use of buildings. The main purpose of this summer school is to train the students in a methodology for evaluation of measured data. PhD students might be interested to know that 2.5 ECTS are awarded for attendance at this Summer School and a further 2.5 ECTS for additional work on a proposed exercise or centred on the students’ own projects.

Gent, Belgium – Wednesday 16 April 2014
This seminar gave an overview of the current knowledge in the field of energy performance assessment. It aimed also at looking into the future of new applications and answers how to close the gap between calculated and real performance. The seminar was organised by the DYNASTEE platform which is facilitated by INIVE, in the framework of the IEA Annex 58 6th international expert meeting in Gent. The practical organisation was in the hands of University Ghent and BBRI, under the auspices of the Technical Committee Hygrothermics.
Building characterisation by co-heating
A common method to evaluate the thermal performance of a building in situ is the co-heating test. This webinar tries to crystallise the current knowledge on the co-heating test, as applied for assessing the thermal characteristics of the building envelope.
The webinar was organised in the framework of the IEA Annex 58 ‘Reliable building energy performance characterisation based on full scale dynamic measurements’ through the DYNASTEE platform (www.dynastee.info) which is facilitated by INIVE (www.inive.org).
