Subject fundamentals
The course is aimed to offer to the student the opportunity to analyze devices and plants related to energy conversion and utilization he already treated in a more theoretical form during the thermodynamics basic courses from dimensioning and expected performances experimental test

Expected learning outcomes
The main expected learning outcomes concern the acquisition from the student of the ability to convert general concepts like conservation principles and heat transfer laws to practical informatiion, that is to distinguish among alternative design solutions,to indicate the more suitable components to realize the design solution, to confirm his design solutions with regard to the applicable normative context, to use the available measurment systems to verify his results, to correctly interpretate the performed test results
Prerequisites / Assumed knowledge
The course implies a suitable knowledge of concepts and methods from basic thermodynamics courses together with some basic concepts in fluid mechanics
Contents
Review about mass and energy conservation equations, heat transfer equations (for conduction, convection, radiation),material thermo-physical properties methods for the evaluation of device performances as heat exchangers, evaluation of load pressure drops both distributed and concentrated (10 h)
Theoretical analysis and calculation procedures of both plants (e.g. air conditioning plants, liquified cryogenic gas production) and plant components recurring in the course cultural field (20 h)
Practice about measurements recurring in the thermal-fluiddynamics field (e.g. pressure drops in ducts, thermoelectrical devices, heat counting) (30 h)
Delivery modes
The above mentioned laboratory practice activities consist of short introductions about the subjects and the measurement performances.
Each activity has a duration of ten hours and is developped at Energy Department laboratories with the exception of the last one occurring at an external institution (INRIM)
Texts, readings, handouts and other learning resources
Every text about thermodynamics and heat transfer, completed with texts about thermal devices. Some further materiali s provided by the responsibles of the laboratory activities.
Assessment and grading criteria
The exam consists in the realization of a design paper dealing with one of the plants or components introduced in the course first part and of three reports presenting the elaboration of data collected during the laboratory activities.
The evaluation is based on the content of the presented material, overview of the subject, accuracy of design solutions, elaboration of the results, presentation of the results, explanatory ability
