Course detail

Urban engineering II

FAST-TP01Acad. year: 2020/2021

The course deals with conduit of technical eguipment in general, especially underground networks and waste management. The general part includes basic concepts, network division, category and history. Students will be introduced with the standards and regulations of the topic, space arrangement of conduit of technical eguipment. It will also be discussed designing of pipe networks (water supply, sewerage, heat, steam and gas) and cable lines (electricity system, telecommunication and data networks). From the aspects of building the student will be acquainted with pipes  materials and methods of construction and rehabilitation of networks, especially in their underground storage. The waste management will be dealt with the concept of waste management, waste catalog, collection and sorting of waste, landfill, incineration and recycling.
