N2 - Dynamic simulation models of buildings have been predominantly based on a top-down approach, which defines the system as a whole with equations, simplifies the representation to make the solutions computable at the expense of accuracy, and then seeks solutions to the system using numerical methods.

Building materials do not solve systems of complex equations. Instead, heat transfer occurs as result of neighbour to neighbour interaction of molecules. That leads to a much faster process than the one calculated by equations.
