BSUG on August 27th will feature Dru Crawley, will be discussing capturing rich data from Building Information Modeling (BIM) for simulation. BIM is one of the most powerful tools that designers have to create and visualize 3-D building models. BIM allows the designer to track thousands of building components in 3-D and thus detect potential interferences. It also makes it easy to visually display a potentially complex design in a way that building owners can easily understand. Similarly, building energy simulation (SIM) has evolved into a powerful tool for evaluating the energy performance of potential or existing buildings. Building simulation allows easy comparison of the energy and environmental performance of many hundreds of design or retrofit options. Because much of the data that building simulation tools require already exists in the BIM models, it's critical that simple methods for sharing that data are available. This presentation describes the opportunities and challenges for sharing data between BIM and SIM and recent advances in data exchange. This will be followed by a demonstration of creating energy models from various sources - 3-D, 2-D, and images - using Bentley's AECOsim Energy Simulator.

Drury B. Crawley, Ph.D., FASHRAE, BEMP, FIBPSA, AIA
Bentley Systems, Inc.
Dru Crawley is Director, Building Performance and Bentley Fellow focusing on building performance, energy efficiency, renewable energy and sustainability. Before joining Bentley in 2010, he led development of EnergyPlus and the USDOE's Commercial Buildings Initiative (now Better Buildings) promoting creation of zero-energy buildings. He has more than 35 years of experience in building performance, energy efficiency, renewable energy, and sustainability.  He received his PhD in Mechanical Engineering from University of Strathclyde in Glasgow, Scotland. His doctoral thesis focused on building simulation as a policy tool, looking at the potential impact of climate change on the built environment.  He also has a Bachelor of Architecture from University of Tennessee and is a registered architect.
Dr. Crawley is an active member in ASHRAE (Fellow in 2009; Exceptional Service Award in 2013; BEMP certification in 2012 and member and chair of numerous technical and standards committees), International Building Performance Simulation Association (IBPSA - Fellow in 2012 and at-large board member), IBPSA-USA (Treasurer and board member), the American Institute of Architects (AIA), U. S. Green Building Council (USGBC), and an affiliate member of CIBSE. He has published more than 125 papers and articles, testified before the U.S. Congress, lectured at more than 20 universities, and made more than 400 presentations on building performance, energy efficiency, sustainability, and renewable energy throughout the world.
