Course - Building physics - BYGG2260
BYGG2260 - Building physics
- Physical basis
- Outdoor climate and indoor environment
- Sound and acoustic
- Fire protection
After completing the course, students should be able to use TEK17 and NS3031 to document buildings' energy needs and be able to assess the extent to which the building's climate screen may be exposed to moisture problems. Furthermore, they must be able to carry out sound technical calculations to assess the sound-reducing properties of building structures as well as the need for acoustic regulation. Finally, they must also be able to carry out calculations of the fire energy of buildings.
This results in the following learning outcomes:
- Have basic knowledge of building physical contexts within heat transport, moisture and sound.
- Have general knowledge of fire as a physical phenomenon.
- Knowing the impact on buildings (climate) and indoor environment, and how to design buildings based on this.
- Be familiar with technical authority requirements related to the performance.
- Assess current building requirements and stresses.
- Conduct assessment and calculation of heat and moisture transport in building parts and acoustics in buildings.
- Calculate energy requirements and power requirements for a building, both manually and using tools.
- Dimense heat, moisture and sound insulation
- Perform fire engineering assessments of buildings, with emphasis on the protection of life and health.
- Evaluate technical solutions against regulatory requirements or other user requirements.
- Carry out practical sound measurements.
- Communicate professionally with peers
- Assess the ethical aspects of selected technical solutions.
Learning methods and activities
- Digital String: Spreadsheets and Simien for simulation.
- Ethics strand: Ethical issues surrounding energy use.
The form of learning is essentially project work, exercises and some instrument use. Mandatory work requirements: 4 mandatory works.
For netbased students:
Pre-recorded video lectures are used. Tutoring is carried out both synchronously using Collaborate and asynchronous using forums. There is a plan for this on the learning platform. There will be a collection focusing on instrument use and group work. There are 4 work requirements that are required to pass the exam.
Estimated time spent:
Pre-recorded lectures: 20 hours Campus lectures: 20 hours Organized tutoring: 10 hours Project work: 50 hours Own effort: 80 hours SUM 180 hours
- Compulsory work 1
- Compulsory work 2
- Compulsory work 3
- Compulsory work 4
