Syllabus
Prerequisites: Requirements for the course are the basic concepts of differential calculus and thermodynamics already acquired from the student.
Target skills and knowledge: The course supplies the engineering bases with to face the various within of energy management both on a large scale (energy conversion plants) and on small scale (energy requirement of the inhabited structures).
The course presents the main applications to engineering of the Physics course basic concepts (temperature, heat, work, etc), the Thermodynamics laws; in particular will be facing the real thermodynamic cycles. The course introduces the heat transfer with reference to the applications to the building structures.
The heat transfer analysis will come moreover finalized to the understanding of the interaction of the human body inside a confined system (air conditioning).
Examination methods: The examination is based on 2 contextual written tests (that is not separable): a numerical test and a theoretical one with 2-3 opened questions, the final vote in 30th is the sum of the two single tests in 15th.
Assessment criteria: The student should demonstrate to master the theoretical learned skills and to know to manage the calculation and design instruments viewed during the course.
Course unit contents: Dimensions and unit systems: fundamental and derived dimensions, International system, Technical system, English system, conversion tables.

APPLIED THERMODYNAMICS
Temperature and the zeroth law of thermodynamics.
The first law of thermodynamics: heat, work, temperature. System and control volumes, closed and open systems. Examples of a reversible process. Internal energy and enthalpy.
The second law of thermodynamics: Kelvin-Planck and Clausius statements. Heat engine. Energy efficiency. Carnot cycle. Carnot principles. Clausius equality and disequality. Entropy.
Perfect gases: equation of state. Specific heats for perfect gases. State relations for perfect gases.
Processes for perfect gas: constant pressure, constant volume, isothermal, isoentropic process.
Pure fluids: diagrams of properties. Gibbs relation (free energy). p-v-T data for pure fluids.
T-v, p-v, p-T diagram. Saturated vapour, vapour quality. Superheated vapour and subcooled liquid.
h-s Mollier diagram. T-s ammonia diagram. p-h R134a diagram. Saturation tables.
Vapour power cycles.
Reversed cycles: heat pump and refrigeration cycles.

HEAT TRANSFER
Steady thermal conduction: Fourier's law, substances thermal conductivity. Thermal resistance.
Natural and forced thermal convection: basics and practical parameters use.
Overall heat transfer: overall heat transfer coefficient, building structures application.
Heat exchangers: basic analysis, thermal profiles.
Planned learning activities and teaching methods: Theoretical frontal lessons and numerical practices necessary for the examination test.
Additional notes about suggested reading: Besides the advised texts, the exercises carried out during the lessons, the unit conversion tables, the diagrams, the tables of the fluid properties used during the course will be uploaded and downloadable by Moodle platform.
