Learning outcomes
The teaching allows students to acquire advanced knowledge in the analysis of problems occurring in energy conversion with particular attention being paid to the presence of thermic form. This knowledge will integrate notions acquired in Physics and Mathematics courses that will enrich knowledge in the Applied Physics sector. The student will acquire a clear awareness in the more ample multidisciplinary engineering context, with a clear recall to aspects connected to thermodynamic systems and the most significant transformations used in real applications.
In order to face advanced and very complex design themes, to manage the innovation and development of new products and technological processes through the application of knowledge, the student will have to interpret and analyze thermodynamic systems, heat exchangers, heat machines, refrigerators, and solar collectors. The application of the most significant transformations used in the real application of the aforementioned processes, heat transmission mechanisms for the resolution of heat transfer cases and the evaluation of the general aspects with regards to acoustic comfort, air-conditioning along with thermohygrometric and visual wellness will also be examined.
The ability to face thermodynamic and heat transfer application examples in building construction as well as acoustics and lighting, will contribute to bettering the level of autonomous judgement in general, along with communication and learning capacity, and conclusions drawn by the student.

Applied Thermodynamics: first thermodynamic principle, second thermodynamic principle, perfect gas, direct cycle, inverse cycle, moist air, moist air transformations, summer and winter heating and air conditioning Heat Transmission: systems of heat transmission, thermal conduction, thermal convection, thermal radiation, combined systems of heat transmission. Thermal hygrometry in buildings: calculation of thermal requirements in buildings, hygrometric issues in buildings. Applied Acoustics: fundamental acoustic quantities, acoustic spectrum analysis, spectrum response of human hear and loudness, criterions of sound and noise evaluation, propagation and transmission of sound waves, acoustic absorption and soundproofing, closed-field propagation. Lighting Engineering: photometry, Lighting production and control systems, methods of calculation for inner lighting, day-lighting, laboratory lessons

Development of the examination
The evaluation consists in an oral exam where the student is asked to explain basic theory and concepts of Applied Physics, by answering the questions asked.

During the exam, the student must demonstrate an ability to apply, autonomously and correctly, the methodologies, models and tools presented during the lessons. Furthermore the student must, demonstrate adequate ability in judging, synthesizing and clearly presenting ideas, concepts and constructive solutions related to Applied Physics.

The exam will evaluate the student's ability to independently formulate and solve the problems posed to him or her. The student's ability to correctly apply relevant models, methodologies and tools of Applied Physics will also be evaluated.

The maximum grade, equal to thirty points with honours will be awarded to students that show full autonomy in the formulation and solution of the problems, showing to have fully grasped the models, methodologies and tools of Applied Physics. The minimum grade of eighteen will be assigned to students that are able to solve problems posed to them with sufficient knowledge of the models, methodologies and tools of Applied Physics.
