    AIMS AND CONTENT

    LEARNING OUTCOMES

    The course provides the basics of energy analysis of buildings and associated thermal plants, illustrates the actual European and national regulations and approaches the dynamic simulation of buildings with a software open-source.

    AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES

    At the end of course the student is expected to be able to:

    understand engineering problems related to the building and its thermal plants;

    estimate the thermal loads of the building;

    approach the sizing process of the thermal plants.
