This allows social practices to drive the calculation of QF as occupants move, varying by day type, demographic, location, activity, socio-economic factors and in response to environmental conditions. DASH has simple transport and building energy models to allow simulation of dynamic vehicle use, occupancy and heating/cooling demand, with subsequent release of energy to the outdoor environment through the building fabric.</li>\n\t<li>The entire model comprises two parts:</li>\n\t<li>1. Agent interaction (under 2.movementtravel)</li>\n\t<li>2.
