HEAT AND MASS TRANSPORT IN BUILDING AND URBAN PHYSICS


ETH Zürich - EMPA Dübendorf; 29 June – 10 July, 2009



An International PhD-Course/Workshop

International Research School, IRS@BYG
Department of Civil Engineering, DTU Byg
Technical University of Denmark, irs.byg.dtu.dk



HEAT AND MASS TRANSPORT IN BUILDING AND URBAN PHYSICS

When analysing the energy use, comfort, indoor air quality, hygrothermal performance and durability at material, whole building and urban scale, computational modelling of heat, air and moisture (HAM) transport becomes of major concern.

The course aims at providing the participants with the knowledge of the fundamentals of heat, air, liquid water and water vapour transfer as well as the latest advances and developments in this field. To this extent, the course has been composed as a unique combination of theory and exercises, covering a wide range of topics including material properties, experimental techniques, state-of-the-art models, special materials, newest energy saving technologies, multi-scale modeling, durability mechanics, Computational Fluid Dynamics, building aerodynamics, detailed indoor and outdoor boundary descriptions, whole-building simulation engineering, risk assessment of building physics performance.

Because of its nature and contents, the course is valuable for researchers, graduate and Ph.D students and engineers.

Course information:

The format of this course includes morning sessions, where the fundamentals are taught by experienced researchers, and afternoon sessions, where theory is applied through practical exercises, software workshops and experimental testing. One day is attributed to exchange of personal research, discussions and practical workshops. All lectures will be given in English. Lecture notes will be provided on the course management system. Instructions on the course will be sent to accepted participants.



Credits:

The course is taught on PhD level and consists of theory, exercises, software workshops, laboratory experiments and project work. Optionally, the exercises and project work can be evaluated by the lecturers for those students who want to obtain credits for the course as part of their PhD programme. The course participation and completion of project work will be credited with 3 ECTS points.
