Course Objectives Essential knowledge of building physics topics related to the thermal, acoustical, and lighting needs of human users, A basic understanding the relationship between natural forces and the environmental performance of buildings, An introduction to the utilization of building features for enhancing occupants comfort while reducing the need for non-renewable natural resources.
Learning Outcomes The students who succeeded in this course;
  • Will be able to describe the qualitative and quantitative interactions between physical features of buildings and natural processes over time, as well as their effects on space use and occupants' comfort.
  • Will be able to classify the environmental parameters that affect the demand for energy and other natural resources in the construction and use of buildings.
  • Will be able to recognize the importance of major design factors like form, construction system, materials and function of a building on its environmental impact during its entire life cycle.
  • Will be able to communicate with other disciplines in the environmental engineering arena.
  • Will be able to discuss the various interactions between past architectures and nature and draw lessons from them.
Course Description This course covers theoretical and applied aspects of the relationship between physical environment and buildings, presenting methods to amend indoor conditions through proper building design.
