Water plays an important role in buildings. Think about water supply coming daily to our homes: an efficient water supply system greatly contributes to quality of life and increases building sustainability. In a context of climate changes, with long periods of water scarcity, a responsible management of water resources is mandatory also at the building scale. New trends are developing towards this goal (rain water harvesting, the use of vegetation, etc.). In this course, after covering the basic principles of hydraulics, attention will be paid to the design of the building water systems in view of a sustainable use of the water resource.

After attending the course, the student is able to understand and manage hydraulics issues related to buildings, to read technical reports and national regulations dealing with water topics, to join new trends for water smart solutions at the building scale.

During the course theoretical lessons and exercises are carried out. For practical applications the same building that is considered in other teachings will be used. Working groups are usually made by 3 persons.

For practical applications the same case study that is considered in teachings that take place in the same semester is adopted; nevertheless the course can be attended also by students that do not frequent these courses. Working groups are usually made by 3 persons.

Modalità di esame: Prova orale obbligatoria; Prova scritta su carta con videosorveglianza dei docenti; Elaborato progettuale in gruppo;
The exam is made up by a written part with exercises (up to 15 scores) and an oral part (up to 15 scores). The candidate has to reach 9 scores in the written part to be admitted to the oral part. The exercise and theoretical developments carried out during classes are topics for the exam.
Exam: Compulsory oral exam; Paper-based written test with video surveillance of the teaching staff; Group project;
The exam is made up by a written part with exercises (up to 15 scores) and an oral part (up to 15 scores). The candidate has to reach 9 scores in the written part to be admitted to the oral part. The written part assesses the ability to solve problems and some basic knowledge of the subject. In the oral part the design exercise and the theoretical developments carried out during classes are topics for the exam.
