Course detail

Technology and Machines in Building Industry

FSI-QSVAcad. year: 2018/2019

The course deals with the technology of mining and processing of stones, gravel and sand. Types of preparing plants are presented. Also dealt is the technology production of mortars, plaster, lime, cement. The course focuses also on the production lines for non-watered and watery method of cement production., and on the technology production: brick ceramic, fire-resistant ceramic, stone ware, building ceramic, hygienic ceramic, earthen ware. Technology of mortars, concretes, building elements production is also included.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will be made familiar with the technical and chemical procedures in building industries, and learn how to set the flow-sheets as a basis for development records.

Prerequisites

Successful completion of the course is conditional on the knowledge of technical mechanics, physics, higher mathematics, machine parts and their mechanisms, physics of materials and principles of electrical engineering.
