Offering and execution

Course offering missing for current semester as well as for previous and coming semesters

Course information

Content and learning outcomes

Course contents *

Related aspects of fluid flow/dynamics are discussed with focus on:

  • Building ventilation 
  • Air distribution in buildings
  • Pressure distribution across the building envelope
  • Building tightness and infiltration
  • Heating/cooling in buildings
  • Bio-climatic space-conditioning (natural ventilation, passive cooling/heating)
  • Indoor environmental quality
  • Energy and resource efficiency
  • Overall building performance

Intended learning outcomes *

The objective of this course is to provide a deeper physical and mathematical understanding of the fluid flow processes relevant to indoor environmental management with key focus on air movement and distribution in buildings (e.g. natural and mechanical ventilation, air heating etc.), as well as fluid flow in heating, comfort cooling, domestic hot water generation and other building service systems. Relevant issues are discussed with the over-arching goal of achieving high resource (energy, water etc.) efficiency,  high indoor environmental quality and user satisfaction, as well as optimal overall building performance.
