053240 - IC STRUCTURES AND TECHNICAL ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS
The integrated Course of Structures and Technical Environmental Systems concerns both the fields of environmental physics and sciences and techniques of construction.
The teaching in Technical Environmental Systems deals with foundations and applications of Technical Physics in the fields of environmental, architecture and spatial planning. It focuses on the fundamentals of rational use of energy and the use of renewable energy sources in buildings and in urban contexts. The physical-technical issues related to energy and environmental planning are pertinent to the course, as well as the diagnostic methods and the mitigation techniques of environmental impacts.
The teaching in Steel, Timber and Reinforced Concrete Structures deals with theories and techniques aimed at both the structural concept and the design of new constructions, and the structural rehabilitation of existing ones. It concerns: actions on constructions, the behavior of structures according to type and morphology, materials and technologies, interaction with the ground and environment; methods and tools for structural design, construction; experimentation, testing and monitoring of buildings; structural architecture.

(5)TIMBER STRUCTURES: Properties of timber. Solid timber and laminated timber. Design of structural elements and structural joints. Construction techniques.
Title: TECHNICAL ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS.
The first part of the course is dedicated to introducing the principles of heat transfer and thermodynamics, which facilitates understanding the phenomena that govern the energy and environmental performance of buildings. These fundamentals are then specifically utilized to calculate the heat transfer through walls and windows and assess the impact of the corresponding design choices. Next, the concept of net Zero Energy Buildings (net ZEB) is discussed and some of the design alternatives that are employed, while designing these buildings, are reviewed. Fundamentals of heating, ventilation, and air-conditioning systems are then briefly presented. Finally, photovoltaic plants and solar thermal systems along with their characteristics and the alternative configurations for integrating them in buildings, including building integrated photovoltaics (BIPV) concept, are presented.
The presented topics include:
- A brief review of principles of applied physics: physical quantities and units of measurement, heat flux, work, energy, power, principles of conservation of mass and energy
- Conductive, convective heat transfer along with fundamentals of radiative heat transfer and solar radiation
- Heat transfer through walls and windows: simplifications and the impact of the corresponding design choices
- Humid air (psychrometrics) fundamentals, heat gains, ventilation, and infiltration
- The Net Zero Energy Building (Net ZEB) concept
- Fundamentals of centralized and decentralized heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems
- Fundamentals of solar thermal units, different types of cycles, categories of collectors, storage units, and integration of solar thermal systems in buildings
- Fundamentals of photovoltaic plants and Building Integrated Photovoltaics (BIPV)
OpenStudio (an EnergyPlus based tool) and its SketchUp plugin are introduced and are then utilized in order to calculate the heating and cooling yearly consumption of commercial buildings.
Innovative aspects - Principles of flipped classroom, through student participation and continuous assessment, are followed aiming at keeping the students active during the lesson.
- The project is designed to be a practical example of building simulation, which is similar to the cases that students will face in their future career; it also includes a research activity focused on design methodologies utilized for constructing net zero energy buildings.
Modalità di valutazione
STEEL, TIMBER AND REINFORCED STRUCTURES
The exam consist both in a written part and in an oral one. If the mark obtained in the written part is at least 15/30, the student can take the oral exam. The final grade is then established by considering both of the parts.
WRITTEN PART, with 3 questions:
1. structural analysis with the solution of beams/frames (10 points);
2. design of structural elements (10 points);
3. theoretical/practical question on the topics of the course (10 points).
ORAL PART: Final discussion will be related to the written test and to all the topics explained during the lectures.
TECHNICAL ENVIRONMENTAL SYSTEMS
The student can choose one of the following evaluation tracks:
- Final assessment track: written exam (30 marks)
- Continuous + final assessment track: the evaluation is made based on the marks obtained in 3 different parts as follows:
Written exam: 15 marks
Continuous assessment (weekly submissions): 10 marks
Final project (presented as a group): 5 marks
