Aims

Mastering advanced knowledge from building thermodynamics, acoustics and structure of building materials. Accent is put on the current research results in the field of building thermodynamics, acoustics and building materials. Illustrations will have the form of excerpts from journal papers which enables students to acquire basic formal skills necessary for presentation of research results in scientific journals.
