During the conceptual design phase, engineers employ simulation tools to assess the performance of their designs whilst meeting the code/standard requirements. In case of large scale structures, CFD tools have been proven vital to assist the decision-making process and produce sustainable design solutions that offer optimum microenvironment to users. In this presentation, we will explore one way towards the wind environmental neutrality in sports stadiums using coupled CFD-Response Surface Methodology multi-objective optimisation tools.

ANSYS Discovery is an interactive experience in which you can manipulate geometry, materials, physics, and instantaneously see 3-D results

This CIBSE seminar is provided by Pegler Yorkshire “a highly commended CIBSE CPD developer”, The Dynamic Hydronic Balancing solution seminar provides an overview of system balancing technology, with great focus on the rapidly growing Dynamic balancing application. The seminar delivers the basics from understanding terminology to the more advance explaining units of measure, equations and how a (PICV) pressure independent control valves work in application. The seminar will discuss typical products and associated tools you may find to support contractors and consultants alike …..Supporting the delivery of building objectives.



The presentation is a guide to important factors in the design of heat networks with instantaneous DHW heat interface units. It covers the benefits of instantaneous HIU’s on heat networks and network design considerations. The importance of low return temperatures and wide delta T’s and how these benefit various energy sources form gas boilers through heat pumps, CHP and solar thermal. The presentation details how to design a system to achieve low return temperatures, including bypass location and control, important and often overlooked system design points, plant-room pump control and how HIU’s assist in achieving low return temperatures. The presentation then looks at common heat network problems and how the latest generation of intelligent electronic HIU’s can assist in overcoming these problems. The presentation looks at the difference between direct and indirect HIU’s and the system design relevant to each type. Graphical data from actual operating heat networks are reviewed and lastly we look at system sizing, from the apartment level back to the plant-room including pipework, boilers, thermal stores and typical operating temperatures and flow rates.


The main focus of the presentation is to talk about the IoT building… but what does IoT actually mean?

Is it simply the next buzz word of the industry, following on from BIG DATA & the CLOUD?

In fact, it actually goes beyond that and certainly expands beyond the Building Services Industry. But it can also be interrupted in a number of different ways depending on how it is perceived. It already exists today in everyday life – smartphones, office equipment such as printers & copiers, even modern-day cars, are all devices with the capability of being connected to the internet 24/7, providing them with the ability to exchange date and critical information through web-based services.

ASD has consistently increased its share of the smoke detection market since it’s invention in the early 1980’s. In the UK, it now represents 14% of the detector market. The latest innovation solves the puzzle of addressable ASD and will again re-define smoke detection.



The session will highlight Cadline’s BIM workflow offering showing detailed thermal simulation (TAS), development and calculation of M&E services (Cymap)with exports to Revit via Cylink to complete the fully coordinated deliverable. The requirement concerning spatial awareness will also be shown using Cyspace, a unique tool that allows users to pre-determine plantroom and riser requirements early on in the design process

The manifestations of corrosion damage in closed heating and chilled water systems, what causes this corrosion and how it can be prevented through good design and construction, correct commissioning procedure and thorough on-going maintenance. The CPD will highlight the important role continual condition monitoring has to play in preventing corrosion, as well as discussing the limitations of water analysis.
