Course detail

Utility Networks (S)

FAST-BP055Acad. year: 2020/2021

The course deals with conduit of technical equipment in general, especially underground networks. 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 equipment. 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.

Aims

Student shell get a overview about the significance of technical equipment network in the contemporary society and fundamental information about system and components of particular networks. He shall get acquainted about connections and cohesion between particular networks, and some more detailed information about function, planning and operating of pipe networks similar to those water management ones – gas and heat piping. From the constructional point of view he shell make acquaintance with building materials and principal building processes of particular networks, especially in their underground placing. Having frecuented he should be able, after some brief amendments of knowledge, to find job in gas and heat supply branche.
