Mechanical Engineering and Physics from the University of Western Australia
Tom Beckerling is a sustainability consultant in Perth, Australia.
His education background is a double degree in Mechanical Engineering and Physics from the University of Western Australia.
Honors research topics were in the simulation of natural ventilation in buildings and natural convection in porous media.
Tom has extensive professional experience, working for two major global sustainability consulting firms, Arup and Cundall, including numerous projects working on
* Energy modelling
* Daylight modelling
* CFD modelling
In the Australian sustainability consulting industry, energy modelling is often conducted to estimate a NABERS Rating.The NABERS Rating is achieved from actual building energy use - thus requiring accurate energy models that predict real world building performance.
Tom says "What I really love doing is learning new skills, using these to reduce GHG in the built environment and sharing knowledge and insights with other passionate and open minded people."
Energy-Models.com is a site for energy modelers, building simulators, architects, and engineers who want learn the basics, to advanced concepts of energy modeling. We've got online training courses and tutorials for eQUEST, Trane TRACE 700, OpenStudio, and LEED for energy modeling. All our energy modeling courses are video based. What better way to learn energy modeling software than screen-casts of exactly how things are done?
