Course Description This subject provides a first course in thermo-sciences for students primarily interested in architecture and building technology. It introduces the fundamentals important to energy, ventilation, air conditioning and comfort in buildings. It includes a detailed treatment of different forms of energy, energy conservation, properties of gases and liquids, air water vapor mixtures and performance limits for air conditioning and power producing systems. Heat transfer principles are introduced with applications to energy losses from a building envelope. The subject is a prerequisite for more advanced thermo-science subjects in Architecture and Mechanical Engineering.

Assignments & Evaluations: The final grade in the course will be based upon analytical homework assignments, two quizzes, two design projects, and class participation weighting as follows: 20% Homework assignments and class participation. Homework will be distributed in class, and due dates announced at that time. The assignments are essential to learning the material. There will be about seven assignments throughout the semester. 7.5% first one 15% second one

There will be two design projects in this class. They will require creative use of the principles and information given in the course to solve a particular problem, relating to energy consumption in buildings. They will be due in October 23 and early December 02, respectively.

15% each one

There will be two quizzes given in class (1 1/2 hour duration each). They are scheduled for October 09, and November 04, at the usual class time and location. The content of the quizzes will be discussed in the class sessions prior to the quizzes.


There will be a three-hour long final exam during the exam period. The date, time and place will be announced later.

Note: All of the exams will cover material from both the lectures and the homework assignments. First Class is Wednesday, September 3, 2003 in Rm. 4-253
