Energy performance design and indoor environmental quality

Teaching is organised in theoretical lectures, application lectures (design) and in experimental exercises. The design application lectures consist of the development of the energy design of a new or an existing building; in particular, the object of this design exercise will be the same adopted in the frame of the “Integrated Design for Sustainable Building”. The design exercise includes: the assessment of the design heating/cooling loads and of indoor temperatures, the energy design of the building envelope and of HVAC systems, the assessment of the thermal comfort condition and of the indoor air quality, the check of compliance with legislative requirements. The experimental exercises will be centred on the measurement of the thermal comfort and of the indoor microclimatic variables, of the indoor air quality and/or the measurements of the thermal parameters of the envelope components.

Energy performance design and indoor environmental quality

EXAM DESCRIPTION The exam consists of two parts, both compulsory: a written test and an oral interview. The written test is structured in two parts: • Theory, with four open questions that require a synthetic answer (duration 40 min), aimed at verifying the acquisition of basic knowledge. • A numerical exercise (duration 1 hour and 30 min), aimed at verifying the ability to apply theoretical concepts. The oral interview is aimed at verifying the design skills. It consists of a presentation and a critical discussion of the final product of the design exercise, by justifying the design choices and results on the basis of the knowledge acquired in the theoretical lectures. Some questions and insights on the theory can be asked during this interview. EXAM PROCEDURE The theory test with open answers will be carried out via PC by using the Polito exam platform integrated with proctoring tools (Respondus). The numerical exercise will be carried out as paper-based written exams with video surveillance by professors with the tool of the Virtual classroom of the Teaching Portal. The oral interview will be carried with the tool of the Virtual classroom of the Teaching Portal. EXAM RULES The written test and oral interview must be done in the same session. The exam booking on the didactics portal is mandatory. During the Theory part the student cannot use any support (book, note, lecture notes, slide, technical standards, others). During the numerical exercise the students can/must use: technical standards (the own student copy), book, note, lecture notes, slide. GRADING Each part of the written test is worth of 16 points (total 32 which corresponds to 30 cum laude). If the total score of the written test is equal or above 15/30, the student can access to the oral interview. The final score is the arithmetic average of the score obtained for the written test and the oral interview (in order to pass the exam each part must have a score equal or above 15/30). If one fails the oral interview, also the written test must be repeated.
