Software tool for thermal design & energy simulation related to buildings. In design mode, APACHE covers the calculation of heating, cooling and latent room loads, the sizing of room units, internal comfort analysis and codes/standards checks. In simulation mode, APACHE performs a dynamic thermal simulation using hourly weather data. Linked modules deal with the performance of HVAC plant and natural ventilation. APACHE is a component of the IES Virtual Environment, an integrated computing environment encompassing a wide range of tasks in building design.

2 days training is recommended for the basic modules, with additional courses available for specific applications. Available in UK and other countries by arrangement.
Many throughout Europe.
mechanical building services engineers, local government, building managers & landlords, building design consultants, architects, and university research and teaching departments.
Geometrical building data may be imported from a range of CAD systems via customised links or DXF files. Geometrical models may alternatively be entered using facilities within the Virtual Environment. Input of data relating to materials, occupancy, internal gains, climate, air movement and systems is managed via graphical interfaces and supported by extensive databases.
APACHE presents a wide range of outputs in tabular and graphical form. Outputs may be exported in a variety of common formats.
