This week we announced that we have been collaborating with Monodraught to release further performance components within the IESVE. The components are for Monodraughts’ Hybrid Thermal Mixing (HTM®) ventilation system, and sit within our VE ApacheHVAC application.
With the previous success of integrating components for Monodraught’s Windcatcher and Cool-phase systems we are very pleased to be adding the HTM system to our components library, providing you with more accurate information for your designs, and in turn leading to more sustainable and better performing buildings.
The IESVE for Engineers suite features a library of predefined 3D component representations of Monodraught systems that can be dragged easily from a catalogue of products onto a building model constructed within the IESVE. The performance and energy savings can then be assessed in an open and transparent process by the client alone, thus building confidence in the application of Natural Ventilation and Cooling systems and demonstrating the true capabilities and potential for this type of scheme.
The analysis tools that are available in the IESVE provide you with a visual insight into the performance of the HTM & HTM FS systems year round, and the authentic textures offer architects and designers a means of understanding the aesthetics of Monodraught systems and how best to integrate them into a building.

For many building types, maintaining space conditions will account for a significant proportion of the overall energy consumption. With the effects of climate change expected to increase the external air temperature, buildings will see a shift toward an increased cooling need. If we are going to reduce our carbon emissions whilst minimising running costs then […]
Once again, IES is proud to be sponsoring the CIBSE Building Simulation Group Award, an annual competition open to postgraduate students from the UK and overseas for the best research project undertaken at Master’s level or equivalent to incorporate the application of building simulation tools. The Awards will be announced at the CIBSE Building Simulation […]
