About This Course:
This learning program is focused on natural ventilation and its beneficial outcomes in context of the building occupants’ health and wellness, as well as savings in energy consumption. The program will provide an overview pertinent to designing naturally ventilated spaces by utilizing climate variables such as wind speed and wind direction. The advantages of natural ventilation design in aiding fresh air to achieve thermal comfort in solar passive design process will be discussed. As well, attendees will understand the role of fresh air circulation and naturally ventilated spaces in preventing the transmission is of paramount importance. Examples will be provided to reinforce the prospective attendees’ understanding the fundamentals of air flow and natural ventilation in built environment.
Learning Objective 1
The learning program will offer an outline of varying levels of natural ventilation design options, and explain how these options are beneficial to the building occupants’ health and wellness.
Learning Objective 2
The program will describe the design differences and evaluate the pros and cons with each level; and elaborate on the perspectives on each building stakeholder with the various natural ventilation design options. Their relevant health and safety issues will also be discussed.
Learning Objective 3
Attendees will learn the hardware and system structure needed for each natural ventilation design option, to ensure that the operations of the natural ventilation mechanism will be of high efficiency and of maximum performance.
Learning Objective 4
Examples will be discussed to reinforce the attendees’ understanding of how the natural ventilation systems operate, and their impacts on the health and wellness of the building occupants. and the environment in context of energy savings.
