3160.19 - Energy and Indoor Environment for Buildings
Energy and Indoor Environment for Buildings
Mechanics and Mathematics 1
The course gives: 1) a basic understanding of calculation of building energy consumption based on the indoor environment, outdoor environment, building envelopes and technical systems, and gives a basic understanding of typical building envelopes and technical systems for heating, ventilation and lighting. Furthermore, 2) a basic understanding of calculation and documentation of the building energy frame and 3) a basic understanding of Faroese and Danish building regulation with focus on energy consumption and building services
The course goes through basic methods to calculate the energy consumption of buildings including calculation of heat loss, space heating and electricity for technical services and lighting. Demands for thermal indoor environment and air quality are introduced. The course describes typical building envelopes and technical systems. The energy requirements in the building regulations are described. Using the programme Be15, the building energy frame is to be documented. Capabilities are measured in the form of a course project, in which the students are to document the energy frame of an actual building. In order to meet the Faroese building regulation, the project encourages students investigate new low-energy solutions. In addition to that, the students also have to take the interdisciplinary co-operation in consideration. They are to reflect on which influence a solution has on other qualities, such as architecture, indoor climate, users, total-cost etc.
Learning and teaching approaches
Lectures, problem solving
A student who has met the objectives of the course will be able to: (Energy and Indoor Environment) - Describe the function and design of building envelopes and technical systems for heating, ventilation and lighting - Calculate building heat loss - Describe typical space requirements for technical services - Explain energy requirements in the building regulations - Describe simple methods for calculation of building energy consumption - Determine the need for heating and ventilation based on legal requirements and demands for thermal and atmospheric comfort - Estimate electricity consumption for pumps and fans - Calculate building energy consumption - Describe methods for benchmarking of buildings - Calculate moisture transport for the building envelope Energy Frame of Buildings - Understand and translate actual technical building drawings - Prepare and document the energy frame of a building by using the programme Be18 - Independently find academically proper conclusion through academic analysis - Translate results to professional advising - Take part in an interdisciplinary work of architecture, engineering and construction - Knowledge to energy related requirements in the Faroese and Danish building regulation.
4 hour written exam. It is allowed to bring all course material to the exam. The home assignments and project must be accepted (pass/no-pass) to pass the course.
