Integrating CFD & HT models with the general building program raises the computational time of building simulations as these simulations are usually performed over a period of one year. Within this context, our aim is to couple a object-oriented modular building program with CFD & HT for airflow and parallelize the simulation with numerous processors for reducing computational time. Also the modular nature of the code will allow to resolve selective critical zones with CFD & HT models while employing simple models for airflow in less critical zones. Thus, there are different levels of modelling different rooms/elements of the building system depending on the requirements of a specific case.
