April 29, 2011: ASHRAE Annual Conference to Include New Track Covering Energy Modeling and BIM

ATLANTA - The American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) will hold its 2011 ASHRAE Annual Conference in Montreal. The plenary session will take place Saturday, June 25, and the technical program will be held Sunday, June 26 through Wednesday, June 29. The theme of the conference is Sustainability Knows No Borders.

New to the Conference Technical Program is the Engineering Tools track, which seeks to keep up with the fast pace of development in energy modeling and building information modeling (BIM) programs. Programs include BIM calculations as applied to the ASHRAE headquarters building; numerical models for predicting dispersion of exhaust stacks, environmental impacts of buildings, building material properties for reducing energy consumption, code compliance, and incorporating acoustics into BIM and large public spaces; operation-oriented flexible building system modeling; an integrated project delivery medical center case study; HVAC design checklists that work; computational fluid dynamics; the Department of Energy’s new buildings energy-efficiency HUB; VAV system controls; inverse modeling tools; and energy audits.

The ASHRAE Learning Institute offers nine instructor-led training opportunities, including full-day seminars on ASHRAE Standard 90.1-2010 and data center energy efficiency. Half-day sessions cover energy management, high performance building design, using Standard 90.1 to meet LEED® requirements, ASHRAE Standard 62.1, and project management for improved IAQ.

ASHRAE technical tours offer an inside view of how technology developed by members is practically applied in building environments. Tours at the annual conference include the Bell Center, home of the Montréal Canadiens; the Montreal Biodôme; and the Beauharnois Generating Station.
