Passive Comfort Lab is a studio course providing an understanding of building physics, thermal comfort, and climate analysis. The formulation of course is such that the first half deals with the concepts and practices of heat transfer along with the measurements and experiments running simultaneously. The 1:1 ratio models are fabricated on campus for real-time experimentation on heat transfer testing inside a 1 m3 volume. The next half deals with building simulation done via design builder software which is an in-depth study of heat transfer and the concepts of building physics used for the optimization of the building envelope.
