Submit an Article Publisher: International Association for Sustainable Development and Management (IASDM) Guide for Authors Abstract: The paper summarizes the efforts of an elective design studio in which a parametric model was linked to detailed energy output data in order to provide accurate feedback about building performance EDITORS Recommen throughout the entire process of design. Photovoltaic collection data was downloaded from the National Guide for Editors Renewable Energy Laboratories (NREL) and linked directly to alternative configurations of designs dation Invitation for produced in SolidWorks. Microsoft Excel provided the direct link between the model and data where English Language students were able to augment the SolidWorks Excel output to include calculations that referenced the Editors NREL data. The program from the 2009 Solar Decathlon competition served as the program for the investigation and provided a constraint-rich environment for developing parametric models. The class REVIEWERS also utilized morphological analysis to identify 13 different forms to develop and analyze. The resulting Guide for parametric models and analysis provided a focused introduction to design methods, parametric Reviewers modeling and solar energy design.
