The Geospatial Visualization, Semantic Modelling, and Acquisition Group at the VRVis Forschungs-GmbH in Vienna, Austria, is looking for support from a student (f/m/d) who would like to experience application oriented research at Austria’s leading research center in the field of visual computing and/or aims to give her/his master’s thesis an application driven focus with the following topic:
Visualization of a Building Energy Modelling (BEM) Network
Energy efficient planned buildings are necessary to tackle the impact of human kind on our environment, by reducing energy and material consumption. To develop an efficient energy concept, various material compositions and heating profiles have to be tested. To detect weak points in the planning phase the heat transfer between the rooms can be visualized by an abstract room-network. The network consists of rooms (nodes) with known / calculated temperatures and heatsources. Transfer surfaces (edges) establish connections between rooms and provide information of its material composition, surface temperatures, and various physical parameters.
In this project, a student is expected to conceptualize a graph representing energy flows generated from a room network of a Building Energy Modelling (BEM) application. The student will research a web-based interactive visualization of the graph to detect strong / weak points of the current concept. The nodes (rooms) and edges (transfer area) as well as simulation data are provided by VRVis.
The following questions should be addressed:
What you will bring to the team
What we offer in return
Applications are always welcome!
Please contact Andreas Walch to send in your application or to inquire about additional information.
We especially would like to encourage female students to apply! For them, there is the option to jointly apply for a FEMtech internship grant.
