Building Physics

By combining applied physics and building construction engineering, the (energy) efficiency of buildings and urban areas can be significantly enhanced – immediately and for years to come.


Physics for architecture, planning and building to improve durability, sustainability and health

Building Physics (BP) is the physics research group of the Building Physics and Services (BPS) unit at Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e). The aim is to acquire new knowledge and to develop and integrate methods, based on physics research and application, that result in a sustainable, healthy, comfortable and productive indoor and outdoor environment. Physical knowledge is vital throughout the lifecycle of building or a built environment, from design right through to planning, construction and maintenance. Especially in the light of fast-changing requirements and development of new materials and processes.
