Basic mechanisms of heat transfer
Exterior environment: Infrared radiation, Convection
Interior spaces: Infrared radiation, Heat conduction and convection, Boundary layer

Stationary heat exchange
U-value, Temperature profile
Loss factor
Design principles for construction

Non-stationary/dynamic heat exchange
Thermal conductance, Thermal admittance
Periodic excitation: Penetration depth, Amount of exchanged energy,
Dynamic heat storage capacity, Preresistance
Aperiodic excitation: Time constant, Reaction to sudden change

Energy transfer through the opaque building envelope
Stationary effects: Temperature and irradiation
Non-stationary effects: Temperature transmittance, Radiation based heat transmittance, Isothermal, Adiabatic
Total balance of opaque building elements
