Synopsis:

Basic review of the thermal protection of buildings, building acoustics and daylighting (heat transfer, thermal conductivity, thermal resistence and thermal transmitance, multidimensional heat transfer, thermal bridges and thermal joints, difusion of water vapour and vapour condensation, mould growth, transient heat transfer, risk of overheating, low-energy, passive and zero-energy buildings, sound in the living and working environment, perception and description of sound: intensity, frequency, time factor, information value, interindividual sensitivity, point, line and plane sound sources, sound power level, directivity factor, sound propagation in the free field conditions, sound propagation in the diffuse field conditions, definable and indefinable sounds, airborne and structureborne sound, definition, measurement, evaluation and the limits, sound reduction index of double structures, mass-air-mass resonance, standing waves in a cavity, definition, measurement, evaluation, the sun and the environment, basics of spherical astronomy, horizons and equatorial coordinates, calculating of the sun azimuth and altitude, daylight and lighting, visual perception, basics of photometry, daylight factor and calculation models of the sky, methods for determining daylight factor, influence of environment on a daylighting: photometric characteristics of shielding barriers, technical characteristics of lighting openings).
