4.423J Architectural Thermal and Fluid Dynamics
Application of heat transfer and fluid dynamics to airflows within buildings. Analytic models of coupled flow and heat transfer for wind- and buoyancy-controlled natural ventilation. Consideration of air exchange between buildings and urban canyons. Stability of multiple equilibrium solutions. Analysis of displacement ventilation, jet flows and diffusers. Multi-node and multi-zone models, and computational fluid dynamics. Use of similitude in laboratory scale models. Measurement techniques within real buildings.
This class counts for a total of 12 credits. This is a graduate-level class.
