“Modeling and data infrastructure for human-centric design and operation of sustainable, healthy buildings through a case study,” a paper coauthored by Ulrike Passe, associate professor of architecture and director of the Center for Building Energy Research, with Yong Tao, Gordon Endowed Professor of Mechanical Engineering at Cleveland State University, and Yimin Zhu, Pulte Homes Endowed Professor in Construction Management at Louisiana State University, has been published in the international journal Building and Environment, Volume 170, March 2020. The paper focuses on data infrastructure that is centeral to the modeling of the design and operation of sustainable and healthy buildings. The authors propose a framework to define the type of data that can be measured or acquired and contributed to the design and operation of buildings for energy efficiency in relation to human well-being and socioeconomic aspects.
