Number of Credits 2 Course Type Lecture
Target Year Target Student
Language Japanese Day/Period Mon.2
Instructor name IBA CHIEMI (Graduate School of Engineering Associate Professor)
OGURA DAISUKE (Graduate School of Engineering Professor)
Outline and Purpose of the Course Lectures will be given on how to determine the capacity of various equipment used for air conditioning and how to design the system consistent with architectural planning. From the viewpoint of optimal design, evaluation criteria and constraints such as economy and thermal environment, physical and mathematical modeling of them, search for feasible solutions, and various optimization techniques are also described. As the basis of the above, the concept of heat and moisture balance, heat transfer around heat exchanger, transfer systems such as pipes, ducts and pumps, and theory of mass transfer with phase change such as absorption refrigerators will be explained.
Course Goals Understanding the concept of thermal/mass balance and optimal design in building equipment systems
