Building Constructions 1
FAST-BHA001Acad. year: 2020/2021
The course is to introduce the history and development of the civil engineering industry to the student. It’s to teach students about the building code and accompanying decrees, local standards, nomenclature, structural systems, etc. Students are to gain information about loads and forces as well alongside ones regarding vertical load and non-load bearing structures, stairs, ramps, and others.

Language of instruction
1. Introduction. History of civil engineering, i.e. the field of building constructions
2. Classification of constructions (buildings, traffic, and transportation facilities, water management facilities and special objects). Classification of buildings. Nomenclature in building constructions.
3. Design and construction process. Directions and influences in construction processes – professional competence of people, building code and accompanying decrees, Czech technical standards, technical requirements for building structures, modular coordination.
4. Primary requirements put onto building structures (mechanic resistance and stability, fire safety, health protection of living beings and living environment, noise protection, safety system design, and energy saving and thermal protection). Influences affecting structures of buildings.
5. Structural elements. Structural systems and requirements. Stability and rigidity of structural systems. Design of structural systems. Classification of structural systems (wall slab, post slab, combined).
6. Load bearing vertical structures – Wall slab structural system – principles, materials, fasteners and the process of joining. Types of wall slab structural systems
7. Load bearing vertical structures – Wall slab structural system – Types of wall slab structural systems
8. Load bearing vertical structures – Post slab structural system – principles, materials, element connections. Types of post slab structural systems.
9. Non-load bearing vertical structures. Lintels and opening head solutions.
10. Stairways – General design principles and requirements, step and flight dimensions.
11. Stairways – Structures of internal and external stairs. Division of stairways.
13. Ladders, ramps, elevators, and escalators.
