The EBC presents its latest research results at the "Deutsche Kälte-Klima-Tagung" in Berlin (18. - 20. Nov.):
In this years student's session, Pooyan Jahangri presents his diploma thesis "Simulation and Comparison of Different District Heating Networks in Combination with Cogeneration Plants".
Prof. Müller met his "Patengruppe" of the WS 10/11. The idea of the "Patenschaftsmodell" of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering being that the new students get a benefit in their first semester so that they can have a better start at the university.
Innovative Ventilation Technologies
Peter Matthes gives a speech at an experts' meetings event "Lüftung 2010 - Antworten zur DIN 1946-6" (Ventilation 2010 - Standard DIN 1946-6 Explained, see flyer) organized by the Aachen city information office "altbau plus". His topic is "Innovative Ventilation Technologies - Examples from R&D".
This experts' meetings aims to clarify specific topics regarding the newly issued German industry standard DIN 1946 part 6. Since May 2009 a ventilation concept is explicitly required for newly built houses or old-building renovations. The basics of natural and mechanical ventilation in different forms will be presented to the audience. Additionally, a software tool will be presented at the meeting to assist the HVAC expert in this context.
Series of lectures "Smart Energy"
The institute "Gebäudetechnik" at the faculty for architecture, RWTH Aachen University, starts its annual series of lectures "Smart Energy" on October 27th.
Airbus PhD Day
Rita Streblow was honoured as one of the best speakers at the Airbus PhD Day on October 21st, presenting her work on "Thermal Sensation and Comfort Model for Inhomogeneous Indoor Environments".
"Improved Learning in Energy Efficient School Buildings"
Inga Eggers gives a speech at the Workshop Eneff:School "Improved Learning in Energy Efficient School Buildings".
The concomitant project of the research project "Energy Efficient School (EnEff:School)", which is promoted by Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology within the budget of advanced concept "Energy Optimized Building (EnOB)", is aimed at collecting and presenting all activities on the field of energy efficient school retrofit.
On October 1st, the EBC staff went on its annual excursion:
This year's trip started with a visit at the Trox-site in Neukirchen-Vluyn, then it went off heading to Düsseldorf. There, the "Plus-Energiehaus" was thoroughly examinded before the day was brought to an end with a boat ride on the rhine and a short detour into the Old Town of Düsseldorf.
