Consulting engineering firms use detailed applications to dimension the ventilation air volumes and sizes of overall ventilation systems. The disadvantage is that the programs are very complex and time-consuming to use so a simplified Excel-based program, TCD2 (Thermal Calculation by Design, version 2) has been developed. To document that TCD2 can be used, it has been tested against annual simulations with BSim (Building Simulation) based on several different cases. The results of the comparisons with BSim are promising for the temperature course during working hours and are on the safe side as regards the recommendations of the Danish Building Regulations. Further validations of TCD2 compared to BSim are required to fully recommend TCD2.
