High-performance buildings use far less energy, water, and money to run them. Building science is fundamental to high performance building design. Learn building energy fundamentals and how to apply strategies like passive heating and cooling to your projects. This will provide a strong foundation for getting the most out of building performance analysis software.
In this course, you will learn about how energy flows through buildings, what factors contribute to building loads, and how all these factors contribute to a building’s energy use. You will also learn how to produce heating and cooling load charts and conduct a conceptual energy analysis using Autodesk Revit.
In this course you’ll study how the sun will move across your site and how shadows will be cast on your site. You will also study shading devices as appropriate to your building. In Autodesk Revit, you will conduct a solar study that can inform site, massing, orientation, and shading.
