Course detail

Building Construction and Building Engineering Physics

ÚSI-ERPSFAcad. year: 2020/2021

Building construction: Basic terminology, principles of building design, general technical legislation, foundation structures, vertical load-bearing structures, horizontal load-bearing structures, structures connecting different height levels, roof structures, non-load-bearing structures, filling of openings.
Thermal engineering: Requirements for buildings in terms of thermal protection and low energy consumption, humidity – condensation of water vapour on the surface and inside a structure, acoustics – evaluation of noise, daylight, sunlight in residential buildings.

Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Tuition takes place in the form of lectures and seminars. The lectures present the basic principles and methods of the given discipline, along with problems and example solutions. The seminars focus particularly on the mastery of subject matter presented in the lectures or assigned for independent study with the active participation of students.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Credit – participation in seminars, completion of assigned tasks.
Exam – the written part is decisive. If the written part is inconclusive, an oral part will be added and it will be evaluated in accordance with the ECTS A-F classification system.

Language of instruction

Czech

Work placements

Course curriculum

1. Introduction to the subject, basic terminology, principles of building design, general technical legislation.
2. Foundation structures – shallow and deep foundations. Functions. Classification, materials, principles of design and implementation, examples. Waterproofing of buildings, protection against radon.
3. Vertical load-bearing structures – walls (masonry, monolithic, prefabricated), skeletons (monolithic, prefabricated). Functions, classification, materials, principles of design and implementation, examples.
4. Horizontal load-bearing structures – ceilings, balconies, enclosed balconies, ledges, oriel windows. Functions, classification, materials, principles of design and implementation, examples.
5. Structures connecting different height levels – staircases, ramps, lifts, ladders. Functions, classification, materials, principles of design and implementation, examples.
6. Roof structures – flat roofs (single skin, double skin), sloping roofs (angled, steep). Functions, classification, materials, principles of design and implementation, examples.
7. Non load-bearing structures – cladding (self-supporting, suspended), partitions (masonry, prefabricated, monolithic). Functions, classification, materials, principles of design and implementation, examples.
8. Filling of openings – windows, doors, gates; surface treatments – plasters, floors, soffits. Functions, classification, materials, principles of design and implementation, examples..
9. Thermal technology – requirements for buildings in terms of thermal protection and low energy requirements, heat transfer coefficient, lowest internal surface temperature.
10. Humidity – water vapour condensation on the surface of the structure and inside. Elimination of thermal bridges – contactless diagnostics, possible solutions, real-world examples.
11. Acoustics – air and impact sound insulation – requirements, evaluation. Evaluation of noise.
12. Daylight – daylight factor, requirements, evaluation. Sunlight in residential buildings, sunlight on recreational areas.
