This course on building services introduces an outline of building equipment, especially air conditioning units and plumbing systems, after lectures on environmental engineering and the planning of building services. Furthermore, the design of lighting, the thermal environment of cities and urban energy facilities are included.
The purpose of this course is for students to understand the design of air conditioning, thermal loads, air diagrams, air cleaning, water supply systems and so on.
At the end of this course, students will be able to explain the basics and theory of air conditioning and plumbing systems and understand the design of each building service. Furthermore, students will gain an understanding of facilities such as the cleanroom, the design of lighting, the thermal environment of cities and urban energy facilities.
