The incidence of the sun and quantity of energy available in each case must be tools for make decisions at urban or architectonical level. In this module the student begins the use of different software for simulation, calculations and analysis of solar radiation applied at the architecture. Another energy form, less studied but not less important for users is the acoustic, either for interior spaces or for urban scale. In this module user-friendly software is used for simulations application on spaces in order to assess and analyze the various proposals with which an architect works in usual situations. Theoretical concepts and the practices carried out prepare students to use the most appropriate tools in their future practice.
