As teacher of Physics at one school of Architecture, I am especially interested in how to transmit in a comprehensive and clear way, without lack of rigor, scientific and technical concepts related to Architecture, Building and Urbanism (in Spain, it is all included in the regular studies).

The energy for the 21 st Century, p.494-499 ISBN 0-08-043865-2   Pergamon, Elsevier Science World Renewable Energy Congress VI - BRIGHTON, England 1 - 7 July 2000. This paper explains the basic idea under software Archisun devoted mainly to thermal simulation of buildings. Its main characteristic is having always a number for each decision of the architect.
  • Learning Physics at the School of Architecture. J.Roset, R.Serra. TIA 2000 Third International Conference. Sustainable Buildings for the 21st Century: teaching issues, tools and methodologies for sustainability. Proceedings: 1.16 (8 pages) European Commission. DG for Energy and Transport, Thermie type B action. STR - 1979 - 98 - IT, Oxford, England  9 -12 July 2000. Paper deals on the basic idea of my PhD about how to explain Physics to Architects. Need of Completeness, Clarity and Disposal of Values is pointed out. We hypothesize that architects should prefer Graphical values rather than Numerical Values.  Developments of this PhD could be applied to Structures topics, Environmental Physics and Building Services.
  • A language for representation of physic-architectural concepts. J.Roset, R.Serra. World Renewable Energy Congress IX. p. LEA66 (6 pages) Edited by WREC. ISBN 008 44671 X University of Florence, Florence, Italy. 19 - 25 August 2006. PhD summary in English. We have developed our ideas (previously indicated in Oxford 2000) defining a routine of Principles – Processes – Results. A Results oriented procedure is analyzed. Using tests with students we had a slight confirmation of our hypothesis about graphics preferred to numbers.
  • Towards A Better Understanding of The Exergy Magnitude. Jaume Roset, Sergi Coll, Rabindranath Andújar, Rodrigo Vásquez. IV.8, p. 550-555. 2nd International Exergy, Life Cycle Assesssment and Sustainability Workshop & Symposium final conference of Cost Action C24. Edited by: Christopher J.Koroneos, Dimitrios C.Rovas and Aris Th. Dompros. Nisyros, Greece. ISBN 978-960-243-679-0. 19 - 21 June 2011. Application of the ideas developed in PhD to a “recent” topic as Exergy is. The idea is trying to use Exergy as a magnitude for dealing with energy and matter transformations at any scale (buildings, communities, quarters, regions, …). Graphical representations are specially worked.

Rabindranath Andújar, Jaume Roset and Vojko Kilar. Application of the ideas of Completeness, Clarity and Disposal Values to a “mature” field as calculation of Structures is. This work is a part of the PhD of the architect Rabindranath Andújar at the Applied Physics Department at Universitat Politècnica de Catalunya (Barcelona).
