Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to deepen knowledge and skills in the building thermal technology. Students will become familiar with other computer programs and calculation procedures exploited in the thermal protection of buildings and in the energy of buildings: ANSYS (thermal analysis of building structures for stationary and non-stationary conditions boundary conditions, CALA (temperature field solutions, a program of the company DEKTRADE - calculation of heat properties of building structures and calculating the energy performance of buildings, Designbuilder program - energy simulation of the heat load in the indoor environment.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The course complements the building thermal technology. It deepens students' knowledge in the areas of: calculating and modeling hygrothermal conditions within the walls and indoor climate modeling 1D, 2D, 3D heat fluxes for steady and unsteady heat conduction, heat transmission, distribution and transport humidity, airflow, air permeability of building envelopes.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester

In this course, students develop an program of the building separately by individual assignments.
