VirtualPULSE is a web application that allows users to simulate building energy and airflow. The tool encapsulates an online web interface with building specification fields, geometry importing, 3D visualization, the Department of Energy’s EnergyPlus simulation engine / outputs, and computational fluid dynamics airflow analyses.
The Virtual PULSE demonstration webinar is meant for instructors seeking to integrate energy simulation into their coursework, but want to avoid the significant time investment it takes for students to learn how to build a complete energy model in energy simulation software. The webinar will give a live demonstration, and discuss experience from using the tool in a course during the Spring 2015 semester.
