Energy analysis software
Bentley Systems Inc. has announced an agreement with Environmental Design Solutions Limited (EDSL) of Milton Keynes, United Kingdom. The agreement grants Bentley exclusive worldwide rights to distribute EDSL’s Tas software for fast, in-depth energy analysis and simulation of demanding and challenging large-scale building environments. Behind Tas software’s speed and comprehensive capabilities is a powerful, time-proven, custom engine that incorporates sophisticated energy simulation techniques such as computational fluid dynamics. Tas’ thermal analysis capabilities allow building engineers to create more sustainable designs by comparing alternative heating and cooling strategies and building designs for comfort, equipment sizing, and energy demand. Tas also supports designers’ efforts to reduce environmental impact by, for example, helping those designing in the United Kingdom meet Part L2 of the government’s building regulations, which focuses on reducing carbon emissions.
