Indoor Environmental Control - a.y. 2016/2017


CFU: 9

Period (Year/Semester): II/II

Languade: Italian

Required/expected prior knowledge: Nothing

Lecturers: Andreozzi Assunta

Course objectives:
The student has to acquire basic knowledge for understanding and resolving the main issues related to the thermo-hygrometric, visual and acoustic comfort of confined environments, as well as acquiring competencies for the numerical simulation of fires in confined environments.
