A class on Thermally Active Structures for Green Buildings will be held on January 9, 2014 from 11:30 am to 1:00 pm EST at the Roper Mountain Science Center in the Wilkins Conference Center on the top of the hill next to the telescope.
Originally begun for heating only in radiant heated floors, over the past couple decades the thermally active structure technique has evolved for cooling as well. In order for the method to work properly, several design and construction constraints and operational issues must be considered.
The presentation will cover:
- "Most effective applications of the technology
- Design issues
- Design tools
- Constraints and limitations
- How-to tips
- Case studies of successful implementations."
The class, presented by the American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE ) and the United States Green Building Council South Carolina chapter (SGBCSC), is AIA and GBCI credit approved, with Daniel Nall, PE as Distinguished Lecturer.
Cost is $10 with $1.54 fee for USGBC SC member and includes lunch. For a non-member cost with lunch is $15 with a fee of $1.81. To register or donate link to the website. View the Roper Mountain Science Center public map.
