Synopsis:

Theoretical fundamentals of heat and moisture transfer and their application in environmental engineering.

· Stationary and non-stationary heat conduction.

· Heat transfer by convection, classification of heat convection cases, natural convection currents in enclosed

spaces.

· Heat transfer modelling, similitude criteria, criterion equations.

· Heat transfer by radiation, spectral and directional properties of surfaces and heat radiation.

· Heat flow in an enclosed system of diffuse grey surfaces, mean radiant temperature in a room.

· Solar radiation, direct and diffuse irradiation of the building, radiation of the Earth and building towards the sky.

· Combined heat transfer – heat transfer through wall, heat loss from piping and heat storage tanks.

· Outdoor climatic conditions, design conditions, characteristic curves.

· Heat transfer through opaque building structures, sol-air temperature, heat accumulation effect.

· Heat transfer through translucent building structures, thermal and optical properties of glazing.

· Moisture transfer by diffusion and convection, similitude criteria, criterion equations.

· Moisture transfer in air and building structures.

· Combined heat and moisture transfer, analogy between heat and mass transfer by diffusion and convection, wetbulb

thermometer temperature.
