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.

TEACHING METHODS

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.
