ΤΕ0305, TECHNOLOGY,
Obligatory, Semester 8, ECTS: 4
Taught in: Greek, Available to ERASMUS on request

 

LEARNING OUTCOMES

 The  course concentrates on  knowledge provision in the field of  energy efficient buildings maximizing  comfort (thermal, visual and acoustic) conditions . The goal is the link between architectural design and sustainability,  combining optimized performance, occupant satisfaction and reduced energy consumption.

SUBJECT

The design of low energy buildings and passive systems presenting not only the available technologies but  design methodologies as well. The students should aquire the skills to:

1.    Characterize the thermal performance of building materials

2.    Avoid certain pathologies of the building skin

3.    Define strategies  for daylighting, natural ventilation and shading.

4.    Design and dimensioning of passive systems

5.    Estimate the influence of a particular design onthe building energy balance.
