Basics of energy saving building regulation

Available languages: RU
Language: English
Course description

The aim of the course is to present the in-depth and systematized provisions of the theory and practice of improving the energy efficiency of buildings in the North. The emphasis is on the formation of professional competencies in improving the thermal protection characteristics of the enclosing structures of buildings. The student should study the specifics of designing energy-efficient buildings, which will allow us to correctly assess the nature, features and prospects for the development of energy-efficient, eco-friendly and energy-saving buildings in the North.

The course is designed for bachelors in the profile of 'Energy Efficiency and Ecological Building', nevertheless it also meets the needs of many students with other interests, as retraining in the training process, the refresher course.


To complete this course, you need knowledge of the disciplines Engineering systems of buildings and Architecture of energy efficient buildings


At the end of this course the students have to:


  • provisions of legislation in the field of energy conservation;
  • standard methods for assessing the thermal protection characteristics of enclosing structures.

Be able to:

  • determine the heat-shielding characteristics of enclosing structures;
  • apply modern methods of thermophysical calculation of building enveloping structures;
  • practice standard methods for testing enclosing structures;
  • assess the impact of energy-saving measures on the amount of specific heat consumption for heating buildings.
The course is structured as follows:
1. Basic provisions for thermal protection of buildings in the Far North
  • Basic requirements for thermal protection of buildings
  • Optimal architectural and planning solutions
2. Thermal protection of multi-story frame buildings in conditions of stable low temperature
  • Ventilated Facade Designs
  • Increasing the thermal protection of multi-storey buildings with ventilated facades
  • Durability and reliability of ventilated facades
  • "Wet" facades
3. Heat protection of low-rise houses made of wood in the conditions of the Far North
  • Wooden houses made of lumber.
  • Timber frame houses
  • Basement slabs and foundations of wooden houses
4. Heat protection of low-rise buildings from Light Steel Thin-Walled Structures in the Far North
  • Constructive solution of buildings from Light Steel Thin-Walled Structures
  • Results of field surveys of buildings
  • Increasing the thermal protection of buildings from the Light Steel Thin-Walled Structures

Practical seminars will be held on the following topics:
1. Heat-shielding shell of the building. Method for calculating the temperature fields of thermal engineering inhomogeneities.
2. The reduced resistance to heat transfer of the enclosing structure. Calculation specific losses of heat through the heterogeneity of the enclosing structure. Tables specific losses of heat.
3. Calculation of the temperature fields of the components of building structures: creation geometry.
4. Calculation of temperature fields of nodes of building structures: creation materials and boundary conditions.
5. Calculation of the temperature fields of the nodes of building structures: the solution of the  problem, processing results, obtaining the value of heat flow.
6. Calculation of the reduced resistance of heat transfer of the enclosing structure.
7. Selection of heat-shielding properties of heat-shielding elements.
8. Work to determine the indicators of energy efficiency assessment.
9. Study of the relationship of energy conservation and energy efficiency.
10. Analysis of energy consumption of low-rise buildings.
11. Analysis of energy consumption of a high-rise building.
