Laboratory Tests of Building Materials and Components

FAST-NJA040Acad. year: 2020/2021

The II phase of works in the summer term tutorial continues in basic experimental laboratory activities. The partial evaluation of achieved results from the first phase was the base for the selection of capacity demands on special methods and on apparatuses in laboratories of the Institute and on further procedures including the preparation and the number of tested samples. This is performed on the one hand individually on the other hand in coordinated way by the guarantor of the subject. In further course of time the results are separately evaluated with the utilization of information from home and foreign literature and by processing the results according to the recommendation of the degree work head. There are solved the organisational questions connected with the securing of possible tests repetition and the solution of extraordinary situations in finishing phases of laboratory tests for degree works. The organisational questions connected with laboratory test results verification in manufacturing organizations are solved too.
