063-0515-16L Building Physics (Thesis Elective)
|Semester||Autumn Semester 2016|
|Periodicity||every semester recurring course|
|Language of instruction||German|
|Comment||Prerequisites for Urban Physics: successful termination of "Building Physics IV: Urban Physics" . |
For Building Physics in general: Knowledge in the relevant field.
|Abstract||Within three elective courses the students need to fulfill an elective work (seminar work). Elective works serve the independent way of dealing with the contents of the according elective course.|
|Objective||The aim of the elective work is to gain comprehensive insight in specific issues related to urban physics and low-energy buildings. |
These issues may concern: wind & thermal comfort in the built environment, heat islands, cross-ventilation, driving rain, pollution dispersion, new technologies for low-energy buildings, design of building systems, optimal control.
The work may include computational modelling and prototype testing in laboratory.
|Content||The contents of these elective studies are expected to link to the subject matter of the attended course.|
|Prerequisites / Notice||It's imperative that the topic of the work is discussed with and accepted by the chair in advance.|
