English abstract:
The SEMERGY project explores the utility of semantic web technologies toward populating the required input data for performance based building design optimization. A major portion of the required
information (e.g. material properties, climatic data and standards, etc.) exists on the internet in extensive, yet ill-structured form. To facilitate a structured access to this data for different calculation modules the following steps were taken: i) Development of a comprehensive building data model for the internal flow of
information. ii) Creation of an ontology of linked building product data. iii) Development of a rule-based system to automatically identify valid construction alternatives for building components. iv) Development of an optimization procedure with multiple criteria (energy use, environmental impact, and investment costs). v)
Creation of a web-based Graphical User Interface to enable entry of data and user interaction. The present contribution provides an overview of the progress made in the above mentioned domains.
