This course has been created with the aim of acquiring skills in the use of the essential tools to carry out the thermal analysis and energy simulation of buildings. Starting from an architectural model, we will learn how to generate an analytical model, define the thermal envelope, calculate the thermal loads and carry out the energy simulation of a building.

General objectives

  • Acquiring basic notions of architectural modelling.
  • Learning how to generate the analytical model of the building.
  • Learning how to generate the thermal model of the building.
  • Learning how to calculate the thermal loads of the building.
  • Learning how to carry out an energy simulation of the building.
  • Learning to analyse improvement measures, with an energy and economic study of the different alternatives.

Target group

  • Architecture, engineering and construction professionals.
  • Students in their final years of technical studies who are interested in learning about this tool that is so widespread in firms and technical offices.
  • Companies, organisations and groups wishing to attend these courses from their offices.
