Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • determine the air flow rates required to achieve the hygienic or desired indoor air quality,
  • develop the ventilation system technology capable of achieving the objective in an economic way,
  • calculate the cooling and heating load as well as the loads for humidification and dehumification in accordance with the building physics conditions in order to achieve the desiered interior operating temperatures and humidities,
  • configure an unit or components which allow for the preparation of outside air, bringing the air into the rooms without unpleasant drafts, provide the necessary auxiliary power, and the automatic control of the system,
  • calculate the power for heating, cooling, humidification, dehumidification, air ventilation, auxiliary drives, heat recovery as well as the annual ernergy consumption,
  • analyse air flows by means of flow simulations (CFD) in rooms and around buildings under the influence of heat,
  • design a facility by use of practical example solutions for ventilation and air conditioning systems, e.g. for offices, garages, clean rooms, meeting rooms, smoke extractors, etc.

Subject of course

  • Goals that can be achieved by using ventilation and air conditioning plants.
  • Dimensioning and design of parts and whole plants.
  • Description of thermodynamic processes, calculations of air flux and energy costs.
  • Integration of plants into the overall building supplies as well as planning regulation aspects.

Teaching methods

  • The content of the course will be explained on the basis of presentation slides.
  • The presentation slides will be provided in TUWEL.
