The building is not a unique object any more, but results from the assembly of components, among which the envelope is one of the objects assembled. The components are more and more specialised and acquire an actual independence. On the other hand, the components of the building and of the envelope have a large diversity of life cycles; moreover the life duration of the components shortens, because they rapidly become obsolescent from many points of view: technology, technique, performance, functionality, etc., so that their easy transformability, adaptability (and/or removability) becomes an important quality required to them. The conception of new building envelopes must take these aspects into account, in order to obtain a best practice design. [less ▲]

In, 1997, the LEMA research team revisited 20 house settlement of Marchin. It was to assess the houses performances 15 years after their construction, and check the possible interactions between "energy-conscious design" and social factors. This paper briefly exposes the results of this recent reassessment, in the light of the project requirements, design options and design methodology. It indicates that careful design may guarantee, for quite long periods of time, both robustness and affordability of "energy-conscious" housings. [less ▲]

A previous research work developed within the frame of the first European R-D Energy Programme has led to the production of a manual design method mainly oriented to the design of low cost, low energy houses. From the beginning, we know that this method remains uncompleted but its lacunas became particulary obvious and combersome when trying to apply it to the real design of 25 houses on a real ground. Therefore we devoted some research efforts to improve the manual method specially in calculation methods. These efforts do not intend to be definite answers to the difficult points we put in light. Some are a first proposal for solving specific problems like intergrating dynamic-thermal behaviour in the design of buildings. Others are particular issues of a continuous work developed in the Building Physics Laboratory for years like equivalent degree-day methods. The last group contents more specific points like shading factor calculation. Some has already been introduced in the new issue of the design methodology. Others have been used during the design of the houses but they need more work to become practical tools that can be introduced in the methodology. And some are kept for further development. In appearance, the present book is just the gathering of disjoined chapters, but the work is not as incoherent as it seems. All the methods have at least one thing in common: the desing orientation of their use. [less ▲]

A first research word carried out for fhe Commission of the European Communities has produced a manual design methodology (1). Mainly orientated to the conception of low-cost houses, it integrates some fundamental thermal concepts into the design process. The present research work had for target to apply this design method to an actual case, in order to test the practicabilité of the method, to bring its lacunas to to the light and to confront the theorectical estimations of heating energy needs, with actual measurements. The recommanded design process has been followed along the conception of 25 houses, among with five have been built and monitored. The design guide has been revised by a re-writing of the manual version, and has been computerized on a micro-computer. Any practical application is now considerably speeded up and usable by practicians. [less ▲]

A first research funded by the Commission of the European Communities has led to a manual design methodology, mainly orientated to the conception of low-cost houses, integrating the fundamental thermal concepts into the design process, without any use of sophisticated technology. The present paper concerns a practical application of this design methodology, used for a project of 25 low-energy houses designed, built and to be monitored. From the first design step until the detailed design, the research team has followed the objective to obtain houses having estimated heating energy needs 50 % lower than commonly, without any investment overrun, even on a difficult North sloped site. The design methodology has been an optimization tool of the volume, the plan, the North and South fenestration, the insulating material, etc. The construction elements were usual (for cost reasons), but their installation has been improved in a manner which allows a continuous control during the construction, giving no the guarantee to obtain thermal properties as close as possible to the expected ones. A detailed monitoring will measure the actual heating energy consumption and thus check the first evaluations. [less ▲]

The first research undertaken for the Commission of the European Communities has led to a first manual version of a design methodology, mainly orientated to the conception of low-cost houses, integrating the fundamental thermal concepts into the design process without any use of sophisticated technology. The work to be carried out in the present project will concern: - the verification of the efficiency of the design methodology by its practical application on the design of a few low-energy houses and the building of these houses ; - an experimental study, which will check the first evaluations given by the application of the design methodology ; - the development of the lacunas so discovered in the design methodology ; - the achievement of a conversational computerized version of the design methodology ; - in the monitoring of the houses, the analysis of the internal partitioning and of the usable fraction of the building thermal inertia. The final product of this research project will contain a revised version of the manual design guide and its computerized version ; the energy savings actually obtained will be described, with a complete analysis of the resulting global economical cost ; the perspectives of energy savings in the low-cost houses sector will be assumed.
