About

In this course, you will learn about the principles of natural ventilation, including the benefits and challenges associated with natural ventilation in building design. They will also learn about computational tools for optimizing building design, including tools for predicting airflow and thermal comfort in indoor spaces.

Aim

The aim of the course is to educate participants on the principles of natural ventilation and optimized building design, with a focus on creating buildings that prioritize occupant health and safety.

Courses Objectives

  1. Introduce participants to the concept of sustainable and healthy buildings, and explain the role of natural ventilation and building optimization in achieving these goals.
  2. Explore the benefits of natural ventilation, including improved indoor air quality, energy savings, and occupant comfort.
  3. Provide an overview of the design principles of natural ventilation, and how to integrate these principles into building design and retrofitting.
  4. Discuss the various building optimization techniques that can be used to improve energy efficiency, occupant health and wellbeing, and overall sustainability.
  5. Foster a collaborative learning environment that encourages participants to share their experiences and insights, and learn from each other.
  6. Equip participants with the knowledge and tools they need to implement sustainable and healthy building practices in their own work or projects.
  7. Provide opportunities for networking and collaboration among participants and with expert speakers.
  8. Encourage participants to think critically about their own building design and operation practices and identify opportunities for improvement towards sustainable and healthy buildings.
