Peter Simmonds has a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering and another in Research and Development from Reading Technical College, and a Master’s degree from HTS, Den Bosch, The Netherlands and a Ph.D. from T.U. Delft. He has been a member of ASHRAE since 1989.

Peter Simmonds先生在雷丁大学获得机械工程和研究开发双学士学位,之后在荷兰HTS 邓伯契应用科学大学获得硕士学位和在代尔夫特理工大学获得博士学位。他自1989年开始成为ASHRAE美国采暖制冷空调工程师协会会员。

 

Peter Simmonds served his Apprenticeship with the AWRE at Aldermaston from 1971 to 1975 as a Plant Fitter. He moved to the Netherlands in 1978 working for RTB Van Heugten. It was during this period with Van Heugten that Peter first became involved in the design of radiant systems for heating and cooling. Specializing in the comfort of patients Peter used emerging technologies of maintaining human comfort developed through ASHRAE Research by Ole Fanger. Always looking for different ways to condition spaces and maintain comfort levels design solutions progressed from radiant ceiling systems to chilled beams. The first projects using chilled beams were designed in the mid 80’s. The next progression was to investigate the possibility of cooling from Radiant floors, the opportunity arose at the Academic Teaching Hospital in Groningen, the Netherlands were large spaces between the buildings were covered to conserve energy during the winter time and the radiant floors were used to heat these spaces, so the next step was to see how these floors would perform using tempered water for cooling. The first installations were unique to say the least but getting the minor problems sorted out the floors performed very well and continue to do so after nearly 20 years. The next progression was to use radiant floors to condition a museum. The conditioning of museum spaces is one of the most challenging aspects of HVAC design. The Groningen Museum was commissioned in 1994 and has been working ever since.

Peter Simmonds先生从1971至1975年在奥尔德玛斯顿同AWRE进行车间钳工的实习工作。1978年他工作于RTB Van Heugten,正是在这段期间Peter Simmonds先生第一次参与辐射供冷供热系统的设计。擅长于用户的舒适性需求问题,Peter Simmonds先生使用由Ole Fanger主导的ASHRAE研究开发的新型技术以保证人体舒适度。他总是寻求不同方法去调节室内空间环境并且保持舒适性水平,这些设计方法从吊顶辐射系统至冷梁。在80年代设计出第一个使用冷梁的项目。接下来通过在荷兰格罗宁根教育医院的项目机会,他着力于研究地板辐射制冷系统的可行性。第一次的安装运行具有非常特殊的意义,问题出现较少并且系统在接下来的20年间性能良好。下一步是地板辐射系统在博物馆的应用。博物馆的空调系统设计是该领域最有挑战性的。格罗宁根博物馆的空调系统自1994年开始运营并至今保持良好状态。

 

In 1994 Peter moved to America to work with Flack and Kurtz, this gave Peter the opportunity to move on to other aspects of design namely high rise buildings. At the same time in 1994 Murphy/Jahn Architects together with Flack and Kurtz entered a competition to design the New Bangkok Airport, the team won the competition and the Airport is planned to open next year. The winning design consisted of displacement ventilation together with radiant cooled floors for this airport. This combination of designs was unique for this particular application for a 5.5 million square foot building; the radiant floor covers more than 2.8 million square feet.

在1994年,Peter Simmonds先生在美国法兰克与库尔兹公司就职,这段期间给了他很多机会去着重于建筑空调系统其他方面的研究,特别是高层建筑。在同一时期,Murphy/Jahn携手法兰克与库尔兹公司对曼谷新机场项目进行竞标,协作团队获得了这个项目的设计机会,并且该机场计划在隔年投入运营。设计方案包括置换通风和地板辐射供冷。这样的组合设计对一个550万平方英尺的大型建筑是非常特别的;辐射地板系统包含了280万平方英尺的区域。

 

Other notable successes during this time were the displacement ventilation system for the Lobby of the Cheung Kong Center, the radiant cooled floors in the lobby of the 199 Fremont building and 101 Second street building. Recent designs also include Akron Art Museum and The Water and Life Museum in Hemet, CA, both with Radiant floors for heating and cooling, The Los Angeles Federal Courthouse with its unique atrium and lately The New Academic Building of Cooper Union in New York.

在这段期间其他显著的成就包括香港长江集团中心的置换通风系统设计,在旧金山199Fremont建筑和101第二街建筑大厅的地板辐射供冷系统设计。最新的设计项目包括阿克伦艺术博物馆,加州赫米特市水与生命博物馆项目的地板辐射供热供冷系统,洛杉矶联邦法院中庭和最新的纽约库伯联盟学院新教育建筑的空调系统。

 

Dr. Simmonds is a recognized authority in the field of Radiant heating and cooling systems. The main goals of his research and applications have been to understand the heat transfer and performance of radiant systems for both heating and cooling. His studies related to thermal performance of these systems led to a unique way to enhance in these systems. Publications of his work led to the development of radiant systems in the USA and are included in the ASHRAE Handbooks.

Peter Simmonds博士在辐射供热供冷系统领域是一位知名专家。他所主导的研究和应用的主要目标是理解热传导和地板辐射系统性能,其内容与这些系统的热性能相关,并据此开发出一种新的方法以提高这些系统的性能。他的著作关于美国辐射供热供冷系统的发展并收录于ASHRAE手册。

 

He has received the Carter Bronze Medal from the Chartered Institution of Building Services Engineers in 1993.

他在1993年得到注册建筑服务工程师协会所颁发的卡特铜色勋章。

 

He has authored or co-authored more than 60 technical papers, articles and books and currently is a Research Promotion Chair for the Southern California Chapter. He is a member of several ASHRAE Technical Committees. Peter also teaches Graduate and Post Graduate Architectural students at the University of Southern California.

他发表或合作发表了超过60篇的技术论文,刊物和书籍,并现在南加州分会担任研究推广主席的工作。他是ASHRAE多个技术协会的会员之一。Peter Simmonds先生同时在美国南加州大学和伍德布里大学对建筑专业研究生和博士生进行授教。

Services

Peter Simmonds provides bespoke solutions to Architects, Mechanical Engineers, Contractors and owners for the following:

  • Thermal Performance of Facades
  • Glass Performance
  • Energy Analysis
  • Thermal Comfort
  • Mechanical Systems Analysis and Performance

Peter Simmonds 先生针对建筑师,机械工程师,承包商以及业主提供各项定制服务,内容如下:

  • 建筑外立面热性能
  • 玻璃性能
  • 建筑能耗分析
  • 热舒适性分析
  • 暖通空调系统分析和性能评价

His approach is to engage with the design team at an early stage to review and reaffirm the building envelope and facade, together with orientation and positioning on site, support optimum energy saving and comfort. By driving innovation, research and development, we test the boundaries of accepted best practice to develop improved solutions for the benefit of the client.

他的方法是在早期阶段与设计团队接洽,以审查和重新审阅建筑围护结构和外立面的设计方案,同时也包括选址方位和现场定位,最终达到最佳的节能效果和舒适性。通过创新,研究和进一步设计,我们测试可接受的最佳方案范围以得到改进的解决方案,为客户得到最大收益。

 

He provides a multidisciplinary approach to building performance, including energy performance, coordinated and managed by the architect, should be embedded into every project team’s workflow. This approach should begin at project inception and utilize simple, easily manipulated performance modeling throughout project design and construction. It should be engaged at the conceptual stage of the design thus informing major design decisions and providing continuous feedback. Modeling at the conceptual design process optimizes energy efficiency and, ultimately, the comfort, health, and welfare of the occupants.

他提供了一个优化建筑性能的跨学科方法,包括建筑师整合和管理的能耗性能应当包含于每一个项目小组的工作流程。该方法始于项目启动,在整个项目设计和建设过程中采用一个简单易操作的建筑信息模型。由于在概念设计阶段已投入使用该方法,因此该方法可提供主要的设计决策并提供连续的信息回馈。在概念设计阶段的模型建立可以最优化系统能源效率,并最终为用户提供舒适,健康和福利。

 

Design, performance, and energy are iterative processes. Initial models address fundamental design parameters, including the building envelope, orientation and massing, typically without including mechanical or electrical systems in a manner that provides crucial, and sometimes surprising design guidance. As models develop, they provide feedback to the design team on how the form, orientation, programmatic strategies, and other variables likely affect the project’s performance in terms of energy, daylighting, comfort, and other design characteristics.

设计,性能和能耗是反复进行的过程。最初的模型着重于基础的设计参数,包括建筑外立面,方位和体量,通常不包括机械或电力系统设计,以提供关键的指导方案。随着模型的逐步完善和建立,它会将反馈信息提供给设计团队,例如建筑形式,方位,纲领性策略和其他变量如何影响建筑能耗,日光,热舒适以及其他设计指标的性能。

 

Designing modern day buildings and their systems takes much more than a technical understanding of science, tools, and technology. The physics of materials and enclosures, no matter what the architectural form, define the need for supplemental building systems, including mechanical or passive heating, cooling, air circulation, lighting, and human conveyance. High performance design, including energy efficiency, is a fundamental design service as meeting basic programmatic, budgetary, and life-safety needs.

当代建筑以及其系统设计需要对科学,工具和技术的专业理解。任何形式的建筑材料和围护机构的物理性能,定义了建筑辅助系统的需求,包括机械或被动式供热,供冷,通风,照明和垂直交通。高性能的设计包括能源效率是一个基础的设计服务,以符合基础功能,预算和安全需求。
