TECHNICAL SYSTEMS FOR ARCHITECTURE
The teaching illustrates the fundamentals of the physical behavior of buildings as well as the main technological systems that are adopted in a building to achieve comfort conditions and energy efficiency. The aim is to allow students to achieve awareness of the importance of the harmonic integration between architectural and technical aspects.
The teaching's objectives refer to the fundamental aspects characterizing the physical behavior of buildings and the main technological systems that are adopted in a building to achieve conditions of comfort and energy efficiency.
The main systems that characterize a building will be illustrated, in detail: air conditioning system, hydro-sanitary system, electrical system. Numerical exercises will be carried out on some theoretical topics.
For self-study and in-depth study of specific topics, the following texts are recommended:
•Rossi N., Manuale del termotecnico, Hoepli, 2014.
•Bergero S., Chiari A., Appunti di termoigrometria e impianti, Aracne Editrice, 2015.
•Magrini A., Magnani L., La progettazione degli impianti di climatizzazione negli edifici, EPC LIBRI, 2010.

Ricevimento: The teacher is available to help students in clarifying doubts about the syllabus on Wednesday morning, from 11:00 to 12:30; also in different day / time, by appointment.

The exam consists of two mandatory parts: a written test and a subsequent oral test. The written test lasts one hour and consists of an open question and an exercise, which can be on theoretical and applicative topics. If the outcome of the written test is sufficient, the student is admitted to the oral test, which is also on theoretical and applicative topics. If the oral test is not sufficient, the exam is not passed and the written test must be repeated. Booking to the exam session is via the Unige portal.
The written test evaluates the successful comprehension of the different topics of the course and the consequent ability to apply the concepts acquired to the solution of some simple problems.
The oral test allows to investigate with more accuracy the student's level of knowledge of the theoretical and applicative themes as well as his ability in performing critical reasoning. In the oral examination, attention is also paid to the clarity of the exposition and to the mastery of specific technical language.
