HEATING AND COOLING IN BUILDINGS
The course is directed at students who want to learn the basic concepts regarding air conditioning systems design and regulations on energy saving.
Air conditioning systems: concepts of psychrometry, heat transmission, thermal and hygrometric behavior of building walls.
AIMS AND LEARNING OUTCOMES
To Provide basic knowledge of the maximum dimensioning of air conditioning systems. To Analyze technical and legislative regulations at national and regional level in relation to energy efficiency and thermo-hygrometry. To Introduce solar working principles (thermal and photovoltaic)
Knowledge base in Technical physics, heat flow, moisture air, fridge cycle

You need to produce e relation on the classorrom exertcitation done during lessons. When the relation is approved you can have oral discussion on course themes
The exam is divided into two parts: the first part consists in evaluating classroom exercises; The second part consists of an individual interview on the basic notions of the course aimed at verifying the preparation of student on the themes developed during the lessons and individually deepened in the texts indicated in the essential bibliography. In general, students must demonstrate synthesis and exposure skills as well as ability to critically reprocess and effectively utilize acquired knowledge.
