Passive Thermal Design for Energy Efficiency and Indoor Comfort

  • 10 Feb 2011
  • 8:00 AM - 3:59 PM
  • Metropolitan Chicago Healthcare Council, 222 Sout Riverside Plaza, Suite 1900, Chicago, IL, 60606


Passive thermal design takes advantage of the physical properties of buildings and building materials to maximize thermal comfort and energy efficiency without using mechanical systems.  Learn to incorporate passive design principles into your architectural and mechanical practice.  We'll cover traditional methods and the latest technologies, low-tech and high-tech.  See fully integrated examples of passive thermal design and review relevant physical fundamentals, design for passive comfort and design for passive ventilation.

AS A RESULT OF THIS TRAINING YOU WILL BE ABLE TO:
  • Identify and articulate the physical forces affecting heat transfer and airflow in buildings.
  • Analyze local climate to identify most appropriate passive design strategies.
  • Incorporate passive thermal comfort measures into architectural designs.
  • Utilize passive ventilation measures in architectural designs.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
Architects, mechanical and electrical engineers, building owners, lighting designers, general contractors, energy efficiency specialists, commissioning authorities, control system technicians, and anyone involved in the building design process.
