Original Abstract

The article deals with potential use of waste materials in construction industry specifically use of high density polyethylene (HDPE) and polypropylene (PP). The article is focused in particular on recycled polymers application in products designed for construction industry, especially for passive houses. Currently certain building details of passive houses are not perfect or their solution results in higher economic demands related to house purchase and its further use. For the purpose of this thesis details of windows installation in external walls and elimination of thermal bridges in wall footing have been chosen. Products were subject to numerical FEA modeling of thermal technique and statics. The executed numerical models documented that products are fully functional and that the suggested product successfully eliminate insufficiencies of some currently applied solutions.
