3. Course contents *

In this course energy and fluid exchanges of the building with the environment and with the inhabitants are studied. In the initiation aspects of the relation to design today are being touched upon. Then a structured approach of the domain of building physics is being presented: energy ( heat) and fluids ( moisture and air) . The basics of building physics are then studied, both phenomenological and empirical, analytical and formative, consituting a broad theoretical underpinning for future advanced courses.
