Thermal behavior of houses: How to design, analyze, achieve appropriate internal temperatures, use energy efficiently, and save on costs
Two sessions course on October 26th and 27th at 8AM Boston USA (1PM London, 4 PM Dubai, 8 PM Singapore and Beijing, 7AM Lima)
Identify the home and the environment parameters necessary for the home to achieve the desired thermal behavior.
- Describe the thermal behavior in terms of these parameters.
- Apply this knowledge to compute thermal behavior.
- Analyze a complete home.
- Synthesize what has been learned in order to formulate the model of any new home.
- Evaluate and explain the thermal behavior of any home.
The course is made up of two conferences that will last 1h 20 minutes each, during which there will be about 20 minutes for questions and answers. Interested parties can also register to take an exam in addition to the two lectures, and those who score at least 90 out of 100 on the test will receive a letter stating that they attended both lectures and successfully took the test. All people who register and attend both sessions will receive a private link to the videos of both sessions.

Those who enter this code 1597 can have a discount and pay only $150 to participate in both sessions. Those who attend the two sessions will subsequently receive an email inviting them to take the exam described above; to take the exam you have to pay $50 more, but only those who get 90 out of 100 will receive the letter indicating that they attended both sessions and took the exam successfully.
Architects, civil engineers, engineers from other disciplines, and people whose responsibilities are related to evaluating the thermal behavior of homes (houses or buildings) to be built or already built. This ability to evaluate will allow them to design, analyze, and achieve appropriate internal temperatures and use energy efficiently in homes; it will also allow them to use energy efficiently and reduce their operating costs. A good thermal behavior of a house or building allows it to reach and maintain a comfortable interior temperature in accordance with the expectations of the design, its dimensions, and construction materials, despite the typical temperatures of the environment of the region in which the housing is built. This course is also generally available to all architecture, engineering, or professional students who wish to become familiar with the design, construction of houses and buildings so that achieve the desired thermal behavior.
The first of the two sessions teaches the student how to: 1) identify the parameters of the home and the environment necessary to design the home in such a way that it achieves the desired thermal behavior; 2) describe the thermal behavior in terms of those parameters — understanding of the material will be achieved through examples given during class; and 3) apply this knowledge to compute the thermal behavior of walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors. In the second of the two classes, the student will learn to: 1) analyze a complete house by relating the modules learned in the first class, 2) synthesize what was taught in class to be able to formulate the model of any new house that is presented to them and be able to analyze it; and 3) based on the instruments that this course offers, evaluate and explain the thermal behavior of any home. For example, if one is going to invest $ 100,000 in the construction of a home, it is important to know what percentage of one’s investment should be spent judiciously to address heat transfer losses through each element of the home. This diagram shows how at the end of the course the student will be able to notice the sensitivity of his system to heat energy losses and how to design to minimize them and optimize the behavior of the house. In addition, if the house is already built, with only a measuring tape, a thermometer, and information about the materials, the student, with this course, will know how to measure the thermal behavior of the house.
Part 1: Identify Parameters, Describe Thermal Behavior, and Compute Thermal Behavior
The first of the two sessions teaches the student how to: 1) identify the parameters of the home and the environment necessary to design the home in such a way that it achieves the desired thermal behavior; 2) describe thermal behavior in terms of those parameters — understanding of the material will be achieved through examples given during class; and 3) apply this knowledge to compute the thermal behavior of walls, ceilings, floors, windows, and doors.
Part 2: Analyze Entire Home, Model Any Home, and Evaluate for Efficient Energy Use and Cost Savings
In the second of the two classes, the student will learn to: 1) analyze a complete house by relating the modules learned in the first class, 2) synthesize what was taught in class to be able to formulate the model of any new house that is presented to them and be able to analyze it; and 3) based on the instruments that this course offers, evaluate and explain the thermal behavior of any home.
