|Learning outcomes of the course unit:|
|Student of the course will undergo a practical realization of a basic simulation in a computational energy program on a specific object – either of a family house, apartment house, or of a “critical” office unite in an office building interacting with internal heat gain modeling, solar radiation, infiltration, properties of transparent or opaque building envelopes, subsoil and their impact on the overall heating and cooling requirements, as well as on thermal comfort of particular rooms (in the symbiosis with the problematic presented in lectures). The student will acquire knowledge , information and instructions, that can be used after graduating in practice, in real drafting and designing process, and can be applied in future profession.|
