||Parametric Natural Ventilation Simulation with Real-time Geometric Feedback (Nat-Vent)
||Valdes, Francisco; Sun, Yuming
||Nat-Vent is a modeling system to parametrically simulate natural ventilation of buildings in early stages of design. The Nat-Vent approach comprehends a set of architecture design tools that were connected to an equation solver through a Model Based System Engineering tool (SysML). SysML, which is a general purpose modeling language for systems engineering, is able to mathematically interoperate between architects and engineers while keeping model consistency between them. This implementation enhances the architectural side of design by offering a simple ventilation tool that can be used by architects and engineers, and also delivers geometric feedback from ventilation performance-based decisions.
