Learning outcomes of the course unit:
Student obtains encyclopaedical knowledge in the wide field that covers a whole range of building materials. The knowledge includes above all important information on physical and chemical properties of building materials, manufacturing processes, products types and their appropriate use, and information on testing methods for determining properties of these materials. The students, by completing this course are expected to obtain a basic orientation in the wide range of building materials. Such an orientation is necessary for a bachelor for his professional career.
Course contents:
• Characteristics of building materials. Basic physical and chemical properties of building materials.
• Basic raw materials for industry of building materials. Building stone and aggregate. Properties and use. Rock and stone products and their use.
• Ceramic building materials (products, use and testing of their properties). Glass: manufacture, types of glass and application of glass products.
• Binders. Characteristics and classification of binders. Manufacture and use of inorganic binders; testing of properties of binders.
• Concrete. Characteristics and classification of concrete. Constituents of concrete; properties of fresh and hardened concrete; testing of properties of fresh and hardened concrete.
• Products from ferrous and non-ferrous metals, timber and polymers for building industry.
• Insulating materials. Types and characteristics of insulations. Properties and use of materials for thermal insulation and hydroinsulation.
