|Learning outcomes of the course unit:|
|The subject subject builds on the "Building materials 1". Student obtains encyclopaedical knowledge in the wide field that covers a whole range of building materials. The knowledge includes mainly all information on both the physical and chemical properties of building materials, processes of their manufacture, types of existing products and their appropriate use, and also information on the test methods and skills for determining properties of building materials. Students, after completion of this course are expected to obtain basic orientation and experience in the wide range of building materials used in civil engineering which are necessary for a BSc. graduate in his future professional career.|
