Course EG3014

Solar Building Design

5 Credits
Second Cycle

Starts week 46, 2019

After the course, the students shall be able to
  • define and individually analyse different ways to adapt and design buildings so that they, because of their form and place, can use solar energy and the microclimate on the site to reduce their heating and/or cooling demands.
  • review different types of windows in a building and the way in which they contribute to the heating of a building.
  • make independent use of calculation programmes for the calculation of the heat balance of a building where factors like internal heat generation and solar gain and heat losses through windows are taken into account.
  • conduct a critical analysis on how a town can be designed and adapted in a sustainable way so as to avoid heat island effects both today and in the future.
