Untitled Document
The objectives of this course is to expose the students to the concepts functional design of building for thermal aspects and energy efficiency; especially in tropical climates i.e. in Indian context. Further objective is to make the student capable of performing fenestration design for natural ventilation and daylighting & design of space for externaland internal noise control.
