Description

This free online course will begin by introducing you to the urban heat island in relation to the radiation concept. You will study energy conservation, radiation interaction with aerosol, urban canopy layer, and anthropogenic heat. You will then be exposed to the theory, models, case study, and surface water balance of evapotranspiration. This will lead you to energy conservation, absorptivity, reflectivity, radiation interaction with aerosol, and radiation budget. 

Next, you will be introduced to radiation on surface and long-wave exchange. You will learn about the purpose and scope of energy conservation building code. This will take you through the applicable building systems, the exemptions, the administration and enforcement of this code. You will also be knowledgeable about the administrative requirements, the mandatory requirement, and the prescriptive requirement for the energy conservation building code. 

Lastly, you will gain an understanding of vertical fenestration in the energy conservation building code. This will take you through vertical fenestration U-factor, SHGC requirements, the minimum visible transmission of glazing for vertical fenestration, and the life cycle. You will then be introduced to ECBC compliance methodology and building envelope trade-off option. You will also learn about  OTTV methodology as used in energy conservation building code.
