The course is aimed at providing the basic knowledge and the design skills in the field of the thermal behaviour and energy performance of buildings. Particular attention will be put on the evaluation of the indoor environmental requirements (thermal comfort, indoor air quality), on the thermal performance of the building envelope components, of the analysis of the built environment, on the design of technical building systems, and on the assessment of building energy performance. The course is organized in lectures, numerical exercises (carried out in classroom and/or in computer labs) and experimental exercises.

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.

Modalità di esame: Prova scritta (in aula); Prova orale obbligatoria; Elaborato progettuale in gruppo;
Exam: Written test; Compulsory oral exam; Group project;
Gli studenti e le studentesse con disabilità o con Disturbi Specifici di Apprendimento (DSA), oltre alla segnalazione tramite procedura informatizzata, sono invitati a comunicare anche direttamente al/la docente titolare dell'insegnamento, con un preavviso non inferiore ad una settimana dall'avvio della sessione d'esame, gli strumenti compensativi concordati con l'Unità Special Needs, al fine di permettere al/la docente la declinazione più idonea in riferimento alla specifica tipologia di esame.
Exam: Written test; Compulsory oral exam; Group project;
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: • a theory test, with four open questions that require a synthetic answer (duration 40 min), aimed at verifying the acquisition of basic knowledge, and • 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 the presentation and critical discussion of the final product of a design exercise; the student will have to justify the design choices and calculation results on the basis of the knowledge acquired in the theoretical lectures. Questions and insights on the theory are possible during the oral interview. EXAM PROCEDURE The theory test with open answers will be carried out onsite. The numerical exercise will be carried out onsite. The numerical exercise will start immediately after the end of the theory test. The oral interview will be carried out onsite. The oral interview will be scheduled within one week of the written test. EXAM RULES The written test and oral interview must be taken in the same session. The exam booking on the didactics portal is mandatory. The final product of the design exercise must be submitted at least 5 days before the date of the session in which the students intends to take the exam, by uploading pdf files in the «Consegna elaborati» section of the course webpage on the teaching portal. If one fails the oral interview, also the written test must be repeated. During the theory test the student is not allowed to use any support (book, note, lecture notes, slide, technical standards, others). During the numerical exercise the student is allowed to consult: technical standards (the own student copy), books, notes, lecture notes, slides. GRADING Each part of the written test is worth of 16 points (total 32 which corresponds to 30 cum laude). If the total grade of the written test is equal or above 15/30, the student can access to the oral interview. The final grade of the exam is the arithmetic average of the grades obtained for the written test and for the oral interview (with a minimum grade of 15/30 for each of the two parts).
In addition to the message sent by the online system, students with disabilities or Specific Learning Disorders (SLD) are invited to directly inform the professor in charge of the course about the special arrangements for the exam that have been agreed with the Special Needs Unit. The professor has to be informed at least one week before the beginning of the examination session in order to provide students with the most suitable arrangements for each specific type of exam.
