Seminar #1, ASHRAE Standard 55 - Thermal Environmental Conditions for Human Occupancy

The seminar takes designers through a short history of thermal comfort research; describes the human physiological responses to the thermal environment and identifies the compliance criteria in ASHRAE Standard 55.

Learning Objectives:
1. Describe the milestones in thermal comfort research
2. Explain heat transfer from and to the human body.
3. Explain human physiological responses to the thermal environment
4. Describe the 4 general factors, 4 localized factors and two personal factors and how they are described in
ASHRAE Standard 55

Seminar #2, E^5: Energy, Exergy, Efficacy, Entropy and Efficiency

This presentation is an introduction to 2nd law exergy efficiency and why the exclusive reliance on 1st law energy conservation is detrimental to society and in conflict with the philosophical definition of sustainability.

Learning Objectives:
1. Explain how buildings are transforming and why that has an impact on operating temperatures.
2. Explain the relationship between u values, surface areas and temperatures used for space heating
3. Explain the relationships between energy, exergy, efficiency entropy, and efficacy
4. Describe why it is important that while society moves to greater energy efficiency there must also be a corresponding increase in exergy efficiency.
