Syllabus 9956001206 - TÉCNICAS DE ACONDICIONAMIENTO

CODE
9956001206

COURSE
CONDITIONING TECHNIQUES (041)

COURSE DESCRIPTION

Conditioning Techniques, in combination with Building Facilities, forms the students in issues relating to environmental comfort and wellness (temperature and humidity, acoustics, illumination), and in issues relating to supplies and evacuation.

Both subjects will be perfectly linked in order to provide a complete and global vision of building services and environmental techniques in buildings.


COURSE TYPE
Degree requirement - Quarterly course

ECTS CREDITS
6 basic ECTS (150 hours)

CONTEXT

- Comprehension and knowledge of the elements that take part in the habitability conditions of buildings and their application to the construction design process.

- Aptitude to conceive, calculate and solve construction details depending on the heat flux and the acoustic transmission.

- Capacity of developing selection, justification and compatibility criteria for materials according to their insulation and absorbent properties.

- Capacity of analyzing a construction project according to the energy demand, of applying technical regulations and of generating technical specification documents of the processes.

- Capacity of designing architectonic spaces with improved acoustic sound and word-hearing properties.

- Proposal ability as a result of the knowledge of the different artificial lighting systems.

- Aptitude to conceive, calculate and design architectonic spaces, considering natural lighting.
