RESEARCH

The Chair’s research activity is primarily oriented towards the development and application of building design methods, building elements and constructional complexes (i.e. envelope) considering bioclimatic conditions, stationary and dynamic analysis of thermal flows in buildings, analysis of solar radiation and daylighting, design and application of control systems for the regulation and optimisation of indoor environment in buildings, exergy analyses of building occupants’ thermal comfort, development of simulation software for the analysis of thermal and lighting properties in buildings as well as study of interactions among users and the building with the emphasis on healthy and stimulating environment. Through our research activity, we conduct real environment experiments, with the purpose to investigate the simulation presumptions and to develop applications of advanced systems for the regulation of the indoor environment.
