Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will deepen their knowledge and skills in the construction of thermal techniques, learn to deal with practical examples of numerical modeling of critical structural details in terms of heat and humidity effects, computer simulation of thermal properties of building structures and buildings.

Teaching methods



Choice problems of the thermal protectin of buildings. Practical numerical modelling of hygro-thermal effects and computer simulation. Hygro-thermal static modelling of critical building details by means of two (three)-dimensional temperature field. Energy performance of buildings. Calculation of energy use for space heating. Practical checking of the thermal-technical characteristics with form of measuring in situ.
