Prof Jankovic published a paper on ‘Modelling computational fluid dynamics with swarm behaviour’ at IBPSA England conference on Building Simulation and Optimization in Cambridge. The paper challenges the use of conventional computational fluid dynamic methods which produce static results, and demonstrates how nature-inspired method based on swarming generates dynamic simulation of air flow, and brings new insights into thermal behaviour of buildings.
ZCLab organised Zero Carbon Buildings Evening at the University of Loughborough on 15th November with the following programme:

Retrofit Open Day on 25th January was arranged to mark the completion of TCosy retrofit of two semi-detached properties
for Birmingham City Council. Presentations by Ron Beattie, Managing Director of Beattie Passive, and
Prof Ljubomir Jankovic of Birmingham City University, were followed by a site visit and a formal handover
to Birmingham City Council. See retrofit blog here.
