Course Description

This lecture deals with functional aspects of building envelope as a shelter from outdoor climate. Lecture will be given on specified topic on principles of thermal and moisture insulation, control strategy of indoor environment, the prediction methods of air flow, thermal radiation and indoor air quality. Examples will be shown for use in building design for thermal environment control and safety problems during fire.


Score is evaluated by end-term examination.

Course Goals

To acquire basic concepts on fundamental concepts on thermal environment control for preparation of master thesis development.

Course Topics

Theme Class number of times Description
introduction 1 The history of numerical methods in architectural environmental control is briefly introduced, followed by introduction of mathematical formulation of physical phenomena.
numerical methods in heat conduction 4 As a common knowledge, heat conduction equation is dealt with in order to understand the basic framework in numerical methods. At the end of this term, report will be obligatory to understand the meaning of discrete equations and their nature.
numerical methods on fluid motion 5 Lecture will be given for standard methods of calculation of fluid dynamics. At the end of this term, simple practice on control volume method and SIMPLE algorithm will be obligatory.
simultaneous system and turbulence 4 Lecture will be given for simultaneous systems of fluid motion and thermal field. In a similar way, turbulence model is to be introduced. The participants are expected to have learned on environmental engineering in architecture at bachelor level.
Evaluation of archivements 1 Evaluation of archivements will be conducted.
