Review Course Objectives

1. Identify basic building elements which affect building energy consumption and analyze the performance of these elements using energy conservation models.

2. Analyze the physics behind various numerical tools used for solving different heat transfer problems in building elements.

3. Use basic numerical methods for solving systems of linear and nonlinear equations.

4. Conduct building energy analysis using comprehensive computer simulation tools.

5. Evaluate the performance of building envelope and environmental systems considering energy consumption.

6. Perform parametric analysis to evaluate the effects of design choices and operational strategies of building systems on building energy use.

7. Use building simulations in life-cycle cost analyses for selection of energy-efficient building components.
