In order to design energy-efficient buildings with high levels of comfort and durability, sound knowledge of the detailed principles and an overall understanding of building physics are required. The overall aim of this course is to teach students the fundamental principles and design practices in terms of physical processes and information management in construction.
Upon completion of the course, students shall be able to:
- develop models and solve problems for steady and transient heat and moisture transfer in buildings
- evaluate theoretical models and calculation results of heat and moisture transfer in buildings
- assess the thermal performance of glazing, shading and innovative building materials
- develop creative and innovative envelope solutions for energy-efficient buildings
