Increasing energy prices and climate protection objectives induce a radical modification of building design. New skills are therefore needed to face the evolution of the demand. The course provides knowledge in heat transfer, lighting, fluid dynamics, and methodological tools that can be applied in construction projects.
Part 1 :
Introduction, energy and comfort issues
Heat transfer : conduction
Heat transfer : radiation
Heat transfer : convection
Fluid dynamics 1
Design of building envelope
Part 2 :
Fluid dynamics 2
Requirements : Basic knowledge in Physics, engineering or architecture.
Evaluation mechanism : Courses and exercises
