Building Physics 1 – Forms of Heat applicable in Building Physics, heat transfer, Psychrometrics, climate analysis and solar geometry.

The trainer highlights fundamental concepts of heat transfer in a building, achieving thermal comfort with least amount of energy; controlling convection-radiation-conduction to understand its effect on the building’s environment. Trainer further introduces Psychrometry, U and R-values, the analysis of different climates; and shadow masks. The trainer addresses the relationship between buildings and heat, the idea of cooling load and the primary processes that give rise to it, the influence of sensible and latent heat on building design and how the psychrometric chart helps aid the process of building design. The trainer further ensures that cooling load reduction and passive design strategies are given more importance before the different sustainable cooling technologies are explored.
