Impianti Tecnici per gli Edifici
Building systems Francesco Corvaro
Knowledge of the basic principles of thermodynamics and heat transfer mechanisms: conduction, convection, radiation.
KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
The course allows students to acquire basic knowledge about the shape and design of the technical plants provided either in residential and non residential buildings. This knowledge, by integrating the knowledge acquired in technical physics courses, will constitute a deeper base that will increase the knowledge of the thermo-mechanical engineering sector, so that the student will acquires a better awareness of the wider multidisciplinary context of engineering, with a clear reference to the aspects connected to systems and technologies for electricity and heat production, and to thermal plants design.CAPACITY TO APPLY KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING:
In order to address the basic design themes, even the more complex ones, and address the innovation and the development of new technological systems through the application of the acquired knowledge, the student should consider the building as a complex system in which the ability to integrate functional instances, distribution, construction, plant engineering and aesthetic-composition is achieved. This ability will be exploited through a number of vocational skills, such as: 1. the ability to identify the suitable primary source of energy 2. the ability to identify the most suitable plant structure; 3. the ability to start and develop a first system sizing.TRANSVERSAL SKILLS:
The presentation of different real systems during the course lessons, will improve the capability to apply knowledge and competencies acquired by the students through the execution of guided exercises that require the use of models and methodologies described in the lessons.
Energy from the sun: the PV and solar thermal. Wind energy. Geothermal energy. Energy from biomass. Energy from waste. Hydroelectric power. The terminals for the technical installations. The boilers. Thermal and hygrometric comfort: Fanger equation.
Development of the examination
LEARNING EVALUATION METHODS
The assessment of the level of learning consists of an oral e/0 written exam during which the student must answer questions related to the topics covered in class. The duration of the test will be the maximum of 30 minutes.
LEARNING EVALUATION CRITERIA
To successfully pass the exam, the student must demonstrate, through the test described above, to have assimilated the concepts contained in the program
LEARNING MEASUREMENT CRITERIA
Normally the student must answer to three different questions. Each question has a maximum score of 10 points.
FINAL MARK ALLOCATION CRITERIA
The final grade will consist of the sum of points obtained by the student in each question. The Lode is given to those who, in addition to achieving the maximum score, demonstrate to master very well the subject.
