Diagnostics of Buildings Constructions (K)
FAST-BI052Acad. year: 2017/2018
The task of construction diagnostics by carrying out a building-technical survey within maintenance, repair and reconstruction of structures.
General methodology of diagnostic procedures, flow diagram of structure survey.
Application of destructive and non-destructive testing methods by surveys, non-destructive tests made more accurate, evaluation of results with statistic methods.
Use the full range of radiographic non-destructive testing on real or virtual construction (check reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, a combination of radiographic and magnetic methods for determining the reinforcement in structures)
Defect and failure diagnostics. Deformations and cracks in constructions monitoring, fatigue and degradation of material. Methods of long-time structure controlling.
Seminary paper concerns the proposal of detailed progress of structure-technical survey of the construction.
Laboratory practice with individual task, demonstration of test procedures on models and buildings.
