    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.

    SYLLABUS/CONTENT

    Building envelope: losses and gains through opaque and glazed components, requested minimal global heat transfer coefficients, thermal bridges, Glaser analysis; solutions to improve the efficiency of opaque and glazed components of the envelope; infiltration and ventilation loads; internal gains.

    Thermal plants: fundamentals of thermal comfort; fundamentals of psychometry and air conditioning; chillers and heat pumps; all-air plants and air handlers sizing; furnaces; plant efficiencies.

    Plant-building interactions: calculation of primary energy requirements in buildings; high efficiency plants solutions.

    Introduction to the open source software EnergyPlus for the dynamic energy simulation of buildings.

    EXAM DESCRIPTION

    Oral examination

    ASSESSMENT METHODS

    The oral examination in based on a specific topic among those presented during the course, with in addition a couple of short questions on other one/two subjects.

    The aim of the examination is to assess the student knowledge and the skill in reasoning and subject presentation.

     

    Students with learning disorders ("Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento", DSA) will be allowed to use specific modalities and supports that will be determined on a case-by-case basis in agreement with the delegate of the Engineering courses in the Committee for the Inclusion of Students with Disabilities.
