Building Physics 2 – Passive design theory and application

In continuation to day 1, the trainer covers the following topics: Passive Building Design, Fundamentals of Solar Geometry and the different ways of reducing heat ingress through design interventions, thermal heat loads on buildings, greenhouse effect and bioclimatic chart. The trainer further provides an understanding of vernacular and climate adaptive design, importance of using local materials. The trainer helps the students in understanding thermal comfort as the goal while recognizing artificial cooling as merely one of the means to achieve it, adaptive comfort criteria and its energy and environmental conservation benefits.
