Abstract

State of the art building performance simulation tools lack capabilities to support practitioners during the conceptual building design stage. [Hopfe et al, 2005] It is hypothesized that risk assessment techniques dedicated to the analysis of uncertainties and sensitivities have the potential to provide a basis for objective decisions during the early design stages. Concentrating on material properties, the paper presents preliminary results from a literature survey dedicated to locating appropriate input data for conducting risk assessments. Of specific interest are hereby the reliability of the source data as well as the method to obtain the mean value and standard deviation.
