Intended learning outcomes

The course intends to give advanced knowledge of building physics and house building technology together with basic knowledge of sound insulation and safety in case of fire. After completing this course students should be able to

  • explain the physical notions of moisture and heat as well in the materials as in the compounded building units
  • perform calculations of heat- and moisture transfer in order to estimate heat capacity, energy and power requirements and effects of moisture
  • describe technical performances of house buildings in order to create healthy housing conditions regarding to sound insulation by calculating extension, reduction and absorption of sound
  • describe technical performances of hose buildings with respect to the demands of safety in case of fire
  • present applications of the most common building materials with respect to healthy housing conditions and low environmental influence.

Course content

Heat: basic physics in heat transfer. Heat capacity. Energy and power requirements. Moisture: Moisture sources. Moisture transfer. Condensation. Desiccation. Problems caused by moisture. Sound: Generally. Sound insulation and demands. Safety in case of fire: Demands and protection. Technical performance. Housing construction: Healthy houses.
