Content and learning outcomes
The course gives a comprehensive view of the principles of building technology that influence buildings. Particular emphasis is put on heat and moisture transport.
Intended learning outcomes
After the course, the student shall
- have a deeper understanding of both the principles of building physics and the fundamentals of how they are sustainably applied in engineering practice;
- be able to describe the most significant engineering properties of building envelopes and describe the factors that affect these properties;
- be capable of choosing and performing building physical analyses that provide long-term sustainable building structures, as well as understanding the limitations of the analysis procedures.
Literature and preparations
Master of Science in Civil Engineering or similar, with an undergraduate course in building technology.
The course literature is announced at the beginning of each course round.
Examination and completion
If the course is discontinued, students may request to be examined during the following two academic years.
- RAP1 - Project report, 3.0 credits, grading scale: P, F
- TEN1 - Oral exam, 1.5 credits, grading scale: P, F
Based on recommendation from KTH’s coordinator for disabilities, the examiner will decide how to adapt an examination for students with documented disability.
The examiner may apply another examination format when re-examining individual students.
Opportunity to complete the requirements via supplementary examination
Opportunity to raise an approved grade via renewed examination
- All members of a group are responsible for the group's work.
- In any assessment, every student shall honestly disclose any help received and sources used.
- In an oral assessment, every student shall be able to present and answer questions about the entire assignment and solution.
