Building Physics

  • Lecturer
    • Moreno Molina
 

The course is founded on the interaction between the theoretical bases and applications relevant to built projects. The topics to be dealt with in the course will be:

  • Light in construction: management of natural light in the project for comfort and safety; materials (optical quality and energy); lighting technology (constructional solutions).
  • Sound in construction: protection against noise; acoustic design; use of materials, spaces and volumes; construction solutions.
  •  Energy in construction: geometry, orientation of the building and management of the envelope; materials (thermal and hygrometric properties); low energy impact buildings; construction details.
