Fundamentals of Radiant Heating
- Department of Environmental Engineering
The subject is aimed on the problematic of radiant heating. At the beginning fundamental theoretical background of the radiant heat transfer will be presented. In following lessons the focus will be stressed on various mainly radiant heating systems such as floor, wall and ceiling heating surfaces (both electric and water) - embedded systems, suspendable gas- burning plaque and tube radiant heaters, electric radiant heaters and even water or steam based suspendableradiant panels.
