Diagnostics of Buildings Constructions (K)
FAST-BIB003Acad. year: 2020/2021
The task of construction diagnostics by carrying out a building-technical survey within maintenance, repair and reconstruction of structures.
General methodology of diagnostic procedures, flow diagram of structure survey.
Application of destructive and non-destructive testing methods by surveys, non-destructive tests made more accurate, evaluation of results with statistic methods.
Use the full range of non-destructive testing on real or virtual construction (check reinforced and prestressed concrete structures, a combination of GPR and electromagnetic methods for locating the reinforcement in structures).
Defect and failure diagnostics.
Deformations and cracks in constructions monitoring, and degradation of material.
Methods of long-time structure controlling.
Seminary paper concerns the proposal of detailed progress of structure-technical survey of the construction.
Laboratory practice with individual task, demonstration of test procedures on models.
