    Abstract

    The characterisation of window opening behaviour is crucial for suitable prediction of building performance (energy consumption, indoor environmental quality, etc.) by means of simulations. In this paper, data from a measurement campaign was used to validate three models of window opening behaviour. Data from the measurement campaign was used as input in the models to calculate the probability of opening and closing windows. Afterwards, the validation was carried out by comparing the predicted probabilities with the actual measured state of the windows in the dwellings.
