This course is designed to meet the specific needs of Architectural and Building Engineering Technology. Major topic areas include thermal physics (temperature, thermal expansion, specific heat, latent heat, heat transfer methods), electricity (electrostatics, DC circuits, introduction to AC), and illumination (nature of light, human eye sensitivity, luminous flux and intensity, illuminance and luminance). Emphasis is placed on good problem-solving techniques and practical applications. There is also a lab component that emphasizes proper measurement and data analysis techniques, technical report writing, and use of computer data analysis software.
