Updated data set from IVT: EGO modulating actuator

The PRINETO EGO modulating actuator is an intelligent autonomous electrothermal actuator for the automatic and demand-based hydraulic balancing of panel heating and surface cooling systems. It automatically ensures consistent heat distribution and thus a high level of comfort during use.

Optimization potential in end-to-end model development

The digitization of the design process should enable all parties involved to work on a common and binding database. Due to the growing experience in digital integral design, many work processes have already been established to pave the way. However, there are still challenges, especially in early…

PTB - a federal BIM pilot project

Walther Meißner, the pioneer of low-temperature research, is the namesake of the new building that the Physikalisch-Technische Bundesanstalt (PTB) is getting on its historic site in Berlin-Charlottenburg.

A New Generation of Building Analysis Algorithms

The analysis of building models is actually almost old hat in the liNear software. It is a very popular and intensively used program module, which is always much more than a nose's length ahead of the other analysis modules on the market. Topics such as multi-part walls and floors, suspended…

Maybe a little less?

This article examines the influence of the design parameters on the determined capacity as well as the required energy demand in order to answer the question to how much energy can be saved by reducing the comfort criteria.

Recycling building with C2C

Building with a positive footprint. The Cradle to Cradle® principle makes it feasible and offers a holistic approach for construction projects within a sustainable development framework. We will introduce the principle and show you how BIM supports implementation, and the influence it has on the MEP…
