Building physics

The course 'Building Physics' aims at providing the students with a knowledge on technologies, quantitative assessment tools and benchmark data to analyze the environmental quality and energy performance of indoor spaces. In detail, the topics that will be addressed in the course are: fundamentals of fluid-dynamics; thermodynamics; thermokinetics; requirements for environmental comfort for the occupants, lighting (electric lighting and daylighting); acoustics (sound absorptance and sound insulation); materials and technologies to control the above phenomena in architecture. The course consists of both theoretical lectures and practical applications (through exercises, experimental analyses, application to real cases).

Building physics

The basic topics of the course (fluid-dynamics, thermal-hygrometrical thermodynamics, lighting, acoustics of indoor spaces) will be analyzed in terms of their impact on the human comfort, through metrics to analyse the environmental performances in terms of both the comfort perceived by the occupants and of the energy demand of a building/space, as well as the potential energy savings. The students are expected to acquire the following capabilities: - capability of adopting conscious choices with regard to the building physics project - capability of determining the performance of a building envelope and of indoor spaces, - capability of verifying the compliance with respect to the main thermal-hygrometrical, energy, lighting, and acoustical requirements - capability of carrying out a pre-sizing of the the HVAC (heating, cooling, air conditioning) and lighting systems.

Building physics

The students are required to have a knowledge on the basic principles of physics as acquired in the high schools as well as the knowledge of the mathematics concepts as acquired in the course 'Calculus' of year 1 of the Bachelor Programme.

Building physics

The course includes four macro-topics, for a total of 10 CFU (6 CFU in the first term, 4 CFU in the second terms): - FIRST TERM A. THERMAL AND MECHANICAL PHENOMENA (4 CFU). This includes the fundamentals of thermodynamics, thermokinetics, psychrometry and fluid-dynamics B. THERMAL PHYSICS FOR A BUILDING (2 CFU). This includes: the performance metrics to analyse the building envelope to verify the compliance with the thermal-hygrometrical requirements; the analytical equations to control the energy balance and the mass balance of a building space - SECOND TERM C. LIGHTING (2 CFU). This analyses the luminous phenomenon from both a physical and a perception viewpoint and provides the design tools (solutions, materials, equations, metrics) for the design of electric lighting and daylighting D. ACOUSTICS (2 CFU). This analyses the sound phenomenon from both a physical and a perception viewpoint and provides the design tools (solutions, materials, equations, metrics) for the design of sound insulation and of sound absorptance of a room

Building physics

Exam: Written test; Optional oral exam; Individual essay;

Building physics

The exam consists of two different parts: a numerical verification (exercises) and a verification on the theoretical contents. 1. NUMERICAL VERIFICATION (EXERCISES): this includes 5 exercises, which are aimed at verifying the capability of students to address realistic cases through a problem solving approach, showing abilities both on the analytical phase (process) and on the analyses of results (product). 2. VERIFICATION OF THE THEORETICAL CONTENTS: this verification can be done by each student by choosing either one of the following options: - a written test with both questions with true/false answers and questions with open answer - an oral exam. The final score will be calculated as average of the two individual scores obtained in parts 1 and 2, provided that both scores are sufficient (>18).
