Learning outcomes of the course unit

Student after completion of lectures in-class exercises can theoretically apply lessons learned in previous lessons from the field of thermal engineering, acoustics and daylighting. Using computer technology will solve a given problem, analyze the results and carry out the evaluation. The knowledge gained in this course can be used in further studies in the diploma thesis, or in practice when assessing structures and internal environment in terms of thermal engineering,'s lighting and sound. It is able to optimize the energy performance of the building and optimization of thermal, acoustic and visual comfort indoors.

Course curriculum

1st Functional requirements for thermal protection of buildings, energy legislation
2en Practical use of software for building heat engineering solution of one-dimensional temperature field for the unsteady state
3rd to 4th Modelling and assessment of selected detail using a two-dimensional temperature field.
5th to 6th Thermal stability of a room - a critical assessment of the room in terms of maximal increase of temperature and a maximum temperature of a room in summer
7th Functional requirements of the day and insolation of buildings
8th Rating daylight factor
9th Structural and energetic properties of the building, the heat transfer through the building envelope
10th Energy performance of buildings
11th Functional requirements for acoustics
12th Rating insulation separating structures
13th Verifying the suitability of design of structures including doors and windows in terms of building physics (overall concept of the building and individual design - optimization requirements in terms of thermal physics, acoustics, daylighting and insolation of buildings)

Aims

Students will gain skills that permit a deeper understanding of multimedia issues in terms of construction design, thermal fault elimination and ensuring low energy consumption of buildings. A part of the course will be an optimisation of void infill elements from a point of view of thermal comfort of a room, interior daylighting and insolation.
