Course detail

Process and Functional Analysis of Building Construction

FAST-DH82Acad. year: 2017/2018

Students can assess quality and health aspects of indoor environment by means of simplified calculation methods and numerical methods of simulations. They can also assess thermal protection of buildings with respect to the thermal field of multidimensional heat conduction and thermal insulations of buildings within non-stationary conditions.
