Course detail

Computer Aided Building Physics Application

FAST-AH053Acad. year: 2018/2019

Software for Building Physics is widely used in the design and assessment of structures to comply with the mandatory requirements of applicable legislation. In particular, the design of structures in terms of thermal and energy characteristics, the assessment of thermal comfort of environment in buildings, optimization of the selection of structures, including doors and windows in terms of acoustics and day-lighting. Knowledge of and ability to use relevant programs in the field of building physics allows optimal material selection and design of structures.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will be able to assess the thermal properties of building structures in the steady state temperature field and will be able to calculate and evaluate the average heat transfer coefficient of building envelope. Students will be able to evaluate the daylight factor. Students will know the methods of calculation and evaluation of airborne and impact sound insulation.

Prerequisites

For effective teaching are expected good theoretical knowledge in the field of building thermal physics, acoustics and day-lighting of buildings. There are expected basic knowledge of terminology and values used in building physics. There is necessary for study knowledge of material properties and design of structural details.
