    An irregular shaped single storey school measures 70m x 25m x 3m high. Including glazing, the external walls have an area of 2000m2. The total area of the glazing is 750m2. The building will be maintained at 22oC and assume a winter design temperature of -2oC. Assume there will be no internal losses.

    Data:
    Rate of infiltration 1.5 air change per hour
    U-value of external walls 0.32 W/m2K
    U-value of windows 1.6 W/m2K
    U-value of floor 0.30 W/m2K
    U-value of roof 0.25 W/m2K

    Calculate the heat loss in kW including a 10% margin.

    Are you sure that is the correct formula , nothing about those figures in the table to the right were talked about?

    no I'm not, although the method of caculating heat loss seems to be the same on the few web sites I looked at, I doubt many people on the student room maths forum are structural engineers so I'm suggesting you use google to research the formulae you might use with the information you have been given.

    another e.g. http://www.arca53.dsl.pipex.com/index_files/tt7.htm
