Yi Zhang - Optimising, a Lifestyle Choice

Optimising, a Lifestyle Choice

Optimising, or the relentless search for perfection, is perhaps an obsession that every engineer should have. However, the difference between trying and succeeding depends on whether you can do it properly. This paper uses a number of luminous examples to discuss the ins and outs of different approaches. Grasping the concept of the fomal optimisation process is the first step you need to put it into action.

About the Speaker

He had 20 years of experience in academic research before co-founding Energy Simulation Solutions Ltd in 2013, a company specialises in building energy performance modelling, computing services, and software development. Dr Zhang has had a particular interest in optimisation ever since the painstaking years on acquiring a Loughborough PhD on this very subject.

Indoor Air quality and the Health and Wellbeing Agenda

Join us for a free, ninety minute presentation and discussion on how we can determine that the spaces we occupy are healthy to inhabit.

In these trying times, attention is turning to the things that really matter to us.. our friends and family. At a deeper level in Maslow's triangle the preservation of our health and wellbeing and that of our colleagues is now a critical focus of attention. Buildings as barriers to pathogens and other unhealthy compounds is the topic of this interesting talk by Edward Murphy. Edward a VP at Ashrae UK Midlands Chapter and founder of Ollio The Building Performance Consultancy was the co-author of a paper that informed some of the current research now happening at the University of Sheffield's Urban Flows Observatory.

This presentation talk given to the CIBSE Technical Symposium in 2019 and now updated to take account of the COVID19 pandemic, explores the state of our indoor air quality and reviews the sensing technologies we have at our disposal to check if the air we breath is as healthy as we would like to think it is.

Where does this fit in with the rise in popularity of Health and Wellbeing certification, and what impacts is the latest pandemic outbreak likely to have on attempts to ventilate social distanced spaces at work.

Places are limited so be sure to book early.
