Learning outcomes of the course unit

Students will get knowledge about new methods of reinforced concrete structures. Students obtain knowledge about investigation methods of construction, about determination mechanical and physico-chemical properties built-in materials. They also obtain knowledge about single phases of repair as well as simultaneously executed control tests.
Next part of course are finding about repair of brick construction, where graduate regaining information on fault sources and possibilities of their sanitation.

Prerequisites

Production and properties of binders (especially cements); types and properties of polymer materials; composition and manufacture of concrete, its testing in fresh and hardened state; laboratory methods for testing of building materials properties.

Co-requisites

Durability of building materials.

Recommended optional programme components

Not applicable.

Recommended or required reading

Not applicable.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations. Lectures are supplemented by presentations of numerous graphic material, especially photos of repaired structures. Part of the course is an excursion to some of actually repaired structure.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Attendance at seminars is compulsory. During the exercise students work protocols, some of the protocols are made in working groups, some protocols are individual. Other conditions of the credit are successful processing of written test (min. number of successful answers 65%). Properly excused exercise can be replaced individually in the specified date.

Aims

The rehabilitation of reinforced structures is during last 10 years an up-to-date, dynamically developing trend in building industry. The subject-leaver obtains actual information about the whole rehabilitation process i.e. about diagnostics performance of degraded structure (method, tests, evaluation) design of rehabilitation and its execution (technology, materials etc.). A component of execution is also the description of methods and frequency of checking tests during the rehabilitation process and after its end.
The next component of the subject is knowledge concerning rehabilitation of brickwork structures. The student obtains here information about reasons of failures and the possibilities of their rehabilitation. The last component of the subject is the rehabilitation of wood.
