Understand cooling techniques required for a climate responsive design​

What you'll learn
Define heat transfer processes, architecturally
Recall principles of passive design
List passive cooling techniques
Understand application of passive cooling strategies

There are no prerequisites for this course.
Being familiar with buildings/construction in general will be a plus
If you are an architect with keen interest in green building design, this course is just for you !
If you are looking to build a green home for yourself, you will learn about learn about the methods that use no energy for providing comfort cooling.

To make our buildings sustianable, it is pertinent that we use minimum amount of mechanical energy to achieve thermal comfort. This is especially challenging in hot climate where high temperature is prevalent most of the year making it inevitable to use mechanical energy for comfort. High humidity can make the situation even more dificult.
Designing buildings that are climate responsive and use as less energy as possible to provide comfort is the way forward. This is is the sustainable approach. Passive solar design principles avoid unwanted heat gain in the building preventing overheating and hence reducing the need for cooling. These principles and strategies are an inherent aspect of the architecture and have been covered in the following courses.

1) Understanding Sun

2) Shadow mask

3) Shading Design

4) Kinetic facades

5) Passive design principles

The next step in the process is to provide cooling with passive techniques that do not use any energy. After having exhausted all the available and applicable strategies, the remaining demand can be met by mechanical space conditioning systems. This approach sharply reduces the cooling demand the associated energy use over the lifetime of the building. This cannot be achieved without climate responsive approach.

This is the sixth course in the series that will cover many passive cooling techniques as applicable to buildings in hot climate. Most of these techniques rely on natural heat sinks to dissipate the excess heat gained by a building. This course also enumerates many interesting projects that showcase successful adoption of passive cooling techniques.

The course is structured in 5 modules with highly visual and engaging content. At the end of the course, you will have clarity on different techniques and their application.

Section 1: Passive Cooling Techniques

Lecture 1 Introduction

Lecture 2 module 1 : Why passive design

Lecture 3 module 2 : Heat exchange in building

Lecture 4 module 3 : Passive strategies for a hot climate

Lecture 5 module 4 : Passive cooling systems

Lecture 6 module 5 : Case examples

Anyone who wants to learn about environment friendly/ climate responsive/ green buildings and sustainability,You do not need to be a professional..this is a beginner course that is aimed at demystifying the topic
