Course Description

One dimensional steady state heat transfer of composit slabsThermal condition for a room, balance temperature of a nonheated space, energy conservation approaches. Conduction: Fourier’s equation, Concept of thermal conductivity, Range of thermal conductance of building materials, One-dimensional steady state conduction through a plane slab. Convection. Steady state heat transfer of composite slabs, overall heat transfer coefficient, temperature gradient. Modified conduction of insulations. Air gaps. Reverse tasks: Maximizing inner temperature different. fulfilling new Uvalue requirement for existing wall. Examples.Linear heat transmissionIntroduction to Thermal Bridges, Definition of
Self-Scale Temperature, two applications of SST, Definition of Apparent Thickness, Generalized model of wall corner,
generalized model of wall corner temperature, Example: estimation of wall corner temperature. Moisture transfer
Definition of Moist air, Dalton‘s Law, Moisture content, Saturation vapour pressure, Relative humidity, dew point, dry
and wet bulb temperatures, Specific Enthalpy, Moisture balance, Mechanism of vapour transfer, Scope of calculation,
Vapour conductivity and resistance, Overall vapour resistance of multilayer wall, Overall vapour transfer, Design
consideration, example. Introduction to Solar Architecture Indirect Solar collecting walls. Mass walls: principles,
surface, shading, energetic operation, delaying, losses, operation in summer, irradiated solar energy, examples,
simplified thermal model. Example: calculation of thermal balance of a mass wallSolar Design Strategies Sustainable
future (global impact of buildings, energy crises, the 2030 challenge, sustainable future). Energy Conscious Design
(historical overview – traditional and modern architecture, international style, energy conscious architecture and
refurbishment). Energy Conscious Refurbishment. Building Energy Standards (building energy regulation,
certifications, standards). Energy Consumption of Buildings (Low and Passive and “zero” energy buildings). Autonom
buildings. Energy Conscious Architecture, Passive Solar Systems (smart conceptual design, building volumes,
thermal mass, mass wall, Trombe wall, transparent insulation, sun space, green roofs). Active Solar Systems (pvpanesl, solar collectors, heat pump, wind turbine)
