Course Description

From among the architectural environment physics, we discuss the underlying theory and application of prediction and control method of heat, humidity, and air that is required when performing environmental target values of the planning and design of building equipment. From the standpoint of transport phenomena, the basic theory concerning the transport of heat, mass and momentum is lectured and the perceptions and analysis method of phenomena that can be applied to the prediction method of each physical quantity in the built environment and equipment.


Terminal Exam.

Course Goals

Mechanism of transport phenomena of heat, mass and momentum in the built environment and building equipment, similarity relationship, The students acquire proficiency in the concept of balance equations, grasping the microscopic or macroscopic transport phenomena.

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
General remark 1 The outline of lecture contents and how to proceed class are described.
Transport of momentum 4 the mechanism concerning the transport of momentum of isothermal fluid and explain the balance formula of momentum transport are explained. The flow of the turbulent flow field, the coefficient of friction and the wind speed distribution in the circular tube and the flat plate are explained.
Transport of heat 5 The mechanism relating to heat transport of fluid with temperature change and the balance formula of heat transport are explained. The heat transfer in the turbulent flow field, the temperature distribution in the circular pipe and the flat plate, the heat transfer amount of the heat exchanger, and the like are described.
Transport of mass 4 The mechanism concerning multicomponent fluid movement and the balance formula of the transport of each component are explained. Transportation of substances in turbulent flow field, evaporation from porous material, principle of psychrometer etc. are explained.
Academic achievement test 1 Academic achievement degree is confirmed.
