Building Simulation: An International Journal solicits papers for a topical issue on Fire Safety of complex buildings (tall buildings, tunnels, subways, etc.)
Urbanization has accelerated in the last few decades. To relieve the increasing pressure on the traffic congestion and inefficient use of space, more and more complex structures are built, such as high-rise buildings, city underground tunnels and subways, etc. Wide attention has been paid to the fire safety of these complex buildings owing to the occurrences of many disastrous fire accidents reported all over the world.
Building Simulation: An International Journal solicits papers for a topical issue on Thermal Environment for Special Space and/or Special Population
Thermal environment is one of the most important indoor factors that affect thermal comfort, work performance, well-being and sleep quality of occupants. Over the last 30 years research on thermal comfort has undergone a dramatic intensification of activity. Many standards have been updated to design the thermal environment that could meet the requirements of thermal comfort.
