Reasonable use of energy and building biophysics


Responsible for the project: Dr. Jana Mlakar

Optimization of passive and solar buildings from energetical, biological and biophysical point of view

Indoor living conditions in buildings have strong influence on comfort and health of their residents. Use of inappropriate building materials and inappropriate set up can cause illnesses and even permanent damages of organisms. Among the most important parameters are temperature and relative air humidity in buildings. Problem of temperature and humidity oscillations can be solved with study of optimization properties of the building. In our research work we will focus on researching joint biophysical phenomena in time dependent temperature and humidity profile, which influence living conditions in experimental objects, which will imitate passive and active solar houses.
