Title: Development of a Web-Based, Code-Compliant 2001 IECC Residential Simulator for Texas
Author: Haberl, J.; Culp, C.; Yazdani, B.
Abstract: This paper describes the development of a web-based, code-compliant 2001 IECC1 residential simulation for Texas. Included in the paper is a description of the software and database platform used in the web application and how this software is attached to the DOE-2 legacy software running on a cluster of servers attached to the web. Additional information is included about how a residence is dynamically updated by the web-page, using macro commands and a flexible yet fixed-schematic input file. This tool is currently in use by builders in Texas to check code compliance of new residential construction. It also calculates NOx, SOx and CO2 emissions reductions from the energy savings of the proposed house for the electric utility associated with the user using the data from the Emissions and Generation Resource Integrated Database (eGRID) provided by U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.
