CRA201 - Introduction to scSTREAM for Building and Architecture

Horizontal spacer
The main objectives of this course are to familiarize attendees with the basic operation of scSTREAM and to equip them to handle typical thermal/CFD problems encountered during the building and architectural design processes. This course will focus on functions useful for indoor HVAC simulations and external flow/aerodynamics around buildings. The attendees will acquire basic knowledge about:
• Basic Operation of scSTREAM
• Checking the validity of the simulation
• Advanced functions of scSTREAM
• Finding information and/or acquiring necessary help
