AbstractWithin three elective courses the students need to fulfill an elective work (seminar work). Elective works serve the independent way of dealing with the contents of the according elective course.
ObjectiveThe aim of the elective work is to gain comprehensive insight in specific issues related to urban physics and low-energy buildings.
These issues may concern: wind & thermal comfort in the built environment, heat islands, cross-ventilation, driving rain, pollution dispersion, new technologies for low-energy buildings, design of building systems, optimal control.
The work may include computational modelling and prototype testing in laboratory.
ContentIndependent work.
The topic of the elective work is agreed upon by the Chair before work starts.
Prerequisites / NoticeIt's imperative that the topic of the work is discussed with and accepted by the chair in advance.
