There are 2 modules in this course

This module begins the importance of Ventilation to maintain the Indoor Air Quality. Significance of ventilation can explain with an example of any office space, where many people are working together. As we know people are continuously doing respiration in which they are consuming oxygen and constantly releasing carbon dioxide diluting the indoor air constantly. To maintain the quality of indoor air, fresh air needs to be introduced continuously. The module delves how the natural ventilation works and how Stack effect and Wind effect drive the Natural Ventilation. This concept is useful to calculate pressure difference between windward and leeward sides of the building The module explores the basics of Mechanical Ventilation System and its merits and demerits over the Natural ventilation based on application. It will be help full to select ventilation system as per requirement. Learners will calculate the ventilation equipment capacity for given application using air flow rate calculation methods & learn the need of Life Safety System in Commercial building and its various component. The module extends its focus to significance of Staircase Pressurization System for building occupant life safety. This will help to create pressurization in staircase which make pave to evacuate from building in emergency. Learners will understand very fascinating topic that how to arrive the required equipment capacity by understanding given sample calculation for given building layout. It will help to select equipment to match design condition. After completion of this module learners will familiar to carry out air flow rate & staircase pressurization calculation based on L & T experience on very large project.

The module begins with understanding significance of the Lift Well and Lift lobby pressurization system. Lift well & lift lobby pressurization system maintain safe exit during any fire emergency & save commodity and life. Students will acknowledge what National Building Code (NBC) and American Society of Heating, Refrigerating and Air-Conditioning Engineers (ASHRAE) says about the Lift Well and Lift Lobby Pressurization system. This will help students to be familiar with these standard and design Lift Well and Lift Lobby Pressurization system as per standard. The module delves into various air leakages and air gains from/to the lift lobby and lift well which help to arrive the capacity of pressurization fan. This will help to calculate total air leakage & select fan capacity to maintain standard pressurization in lift lobby and lift well. Student will come to how smoke is dangerous the occupant life and why smoke extraction system is so much important. The module explores the various component of Smoke Extraction system and code requirement while designing this system. Student will familiar with National Building Code (NBC) to design smoke extraction system. Students will understand minimum requirement for designing smoke extraction system for various spaces like Cark Park, Office spaces, Atriums, etc. After completion of this module students will familiar to carry out lift well & lift lobby pressurization calculation based on L & T experience on very large project. Also, students will aware of smoke extraction system standards, codes & calculation for car park, office space & attriums.
