Building physics, Teaching, Computer program


This paper introduces a graphic-based computer program in teaching building physics.  Based on this tool, students can easily understand the climate conditions of a specific location and passive design strategies can be derived from the analysis and be applied in building design. The advantage of using this tool over conventional methods in teaching is its friendly user interface and accurate passive design strategies can be easily obtained without using complex calculations or analysis.
