ECTS Credits 6
Workload TP(60H)
Scientific area Science and Technology
Entry requirements N.A.
Learning outcomes Acquisition of fundamental knowledge, in the area of engineering, necessary for the conceptualization of technological products.
Acquisition of technical skills that allow dialogue and exchange of ideas with Engineering colleagues within multidisciplinary product development teams.
Broadening the scope of technical knowledge acquired by students in previous curricular units, and its application in coordination with the Industrial Design 5 curricular unit, in a multidisciplinary work environment of product development.

2. Basic concepts of luminotechnics: nature of light; Light and color.
Photometry: Quantities and concepts; Luminous flux; Illumination intensity; Luminance.
Lamp and accessory characteristics: Energy Efficiency; Color Temperature; Relative spectral distribution and photometric diagram of lamps. Color Rendering Index. Luminaires.
Lighting design.
3. Heat transfer: fundamental concepts; thermal properties; empirical laws associated with the heat conduction and heat convection mechanisms; thermal radiation laws; thermal radiation exchange between surfaces.

Teaching Methodologies and Assessment Criteria A methodology using the exposition of theoretical contents is adopted, implemented through cases applied to Industrial Design, as well as the articulated monitoring of product development within the curricular unit Industrial Design 5 using a problem solving methodology, with research of relevant information the implementation of the current project. Throughout TP classes, the course content is discussed with the support of lecture notes and practical exercises. The course evaluation consists of one assessment test (TA) and two report assignments (TP1b and TP1c). There is attendance control.
Language Portuguese. Tutorial support is available in English.
