AbstractThe first semester of the annual course focuses on physical principles, component and systems for the efficient and sustainable heating, cooling and ventilation of buildings on different scales and the interaction of technical systems with architectural and urban design.
ObjectiveAfter this lecture, students can identify relevant physical principles, active and passive approaches, technical components and systems for efficient and sustainable supply of buildings with heat, cold and fresh air. Students are aware of the implications and interactions of such technical systems on urban and architectural design, construction and operation of buildings. Using simplified methods of analysis and quantification, students are able to estimate the relevant qualities and quantities to supply a building.
Content1. Introduction and overview
2. Heating and cooling systems in buildings
3. Ventilation
