Abstract:

BLAST Version 3.0 can be used to model passive solar applications and to analyze large-scale industrial facilities. Parameters, users can study with BLAST Version 3.0 in addition to BLAST 2.0 capabilities include 1 interzone heat transfer and ventilation, 2 movable insulation, 3 daylighting, 4 exact internal solar distribution, 5 radiant temperature control, 6 exterior radiant interchange, 7 mechanical ventilation, 8 process heat as heat source, 9 latent air -to-air heat recovery, 10 water-cooled packaged systems, 11 induction unit systems, 12 direct-drive chillers, and 13 purchased steam from utilities. BLAST version 3.0 also offers the user a generalized report writer and several new output report options not available from BLAST Version 2.0. Although the simulation capabilities of BLAST Version 3.0 are expanded over BLAST Version 2.0, users familiar with BLAST Version 2.0 can use Version 3.0 without modifying their approach or their BLAST input.
