Lectures 08_8 & 08_9 Outline: Basic Thermodynamic Concepts, Building Energy Motivation/Objective Develop a model to determine how construction materials affect inside temperature and heat loss in a small house. Approach 1. Define system, identify unknown (interior temperature ) i T 2. Write energy balance equation (rate form) 3. Relate terms in balance eq to unknown temperature and other inputs 4. Specify heat capacities, thermal resistances, meteorological inputs, etc, solve energy balance eq. for unknown interior temperature (MATLAB) 5. Compute heat loss, examine impact of building material properties Concepts and Definitions Needed: Relevant thermodynamic properties: Mass, volume, internal energy, enthalpy, heat capacity,
