General principles of statics. Materials and elements of farm buildings. Energy balance of farm buildings. Examples of rural buildings. Survey and representation of rural territory.
Measures of distances, angles and differences in level and relevant instruments. Simple topographic surveys. Global Positioning Systems.
Reading and using of topographic maps, cadastral maps.
For Topography and Cartography part, it is possible to utilize books of
Knowledge acquired: the main goal is to form the students in relation to problems concerning the working of farm and forestry buildings and concerning the survey and representation of the territory.
Competence acquired (at the end of the course): Methods to evaluate and design farm and forestry buildings; methods to read maps and to carry out topographic works.
Skills acquired (at the end of the course):
the student must acquire capacities necessary to carry out works concerning the design of rural and forestry buildings. The student has to know the reading and using of the maps, in order to carry out topographic surveys and to analyze the territory.
Courses to be used as requirements (required and/or recommended)
Courses required: no
Courses recommended: Mathematics
Presentations used in lessons available on e-learning platform Moodle
Type of Assessment
Exam modality: Intermediate tests on 3 parts of the course (statics; environmental control; topography and cartography); each trial in progress is assigned a score in tenths or thirtieths. If all the tests are passed, the mark is attributed directly. The parts not covered in the ongoing tests or not passed must be brought to the oral exam. The final oral exam is required for those who have not completed all the ongoing tests. final oral exam.
The intermediate tests can be carried out online using Moodle platform.
Intermediate tests are counted for final vote.
Intermediate tests remain valid in the following academic years.
Evaluation criteria: in written tests with open questions or carrying out calculations, the unsuccessful answer and the wrong answer are considered in the same way; the oral exam takes into account: argumentative rigor, completeness, originality, language properties.
Due to a health emergency, the oral examination can be carried out with the help of telematic platforms.
