Q1. With diagrams describe the ways that the human body gains or loses heat to its environment. Explain how these mechanisms work. (20 marks) Q2. For an uninsulated brick veneer house in Sydney in winter describe the main paths of heat loss to the outside air. (Hint: Use a diagram showing a section through the building) (20 marks) Q3. Do a quick calculation of the thermal conductance (U value) across a cavity wall consisting of:
x Outer skin 110mm brickwork (South facing, exposed aspect) x 30mm cavity x Inner skin of 90mm studwork with 10mm plasterboard
The necessary data can found in module 5. Compare this with the worked example of an insulated brick veneer wall in the worked example. Show your working.
Discuss whether or not cavity brickwork is a thermally efficient wall for housing in Australia. Q4. Describe five strategies for passive solar cooling in hot dry climates. (Hint: Use diagrams) (20 marks)
