Planned learning activities and teaching methods

Teaching methods depend on the type of course unit as specified in the article 7 of BUT Rules for Studies and Examinations.

Assesment methods and criteria linked to learning outcomes

Conditions of being granted credit - attendance at tutorials,working out and submission of a
semestral assignment, test
Form of examination - combined exam
Method and rules of the subject's resulting classification -summary of point evaluation of work at tutorial (range of 20 - 40 points) and exam ( range of 30 - 60 points)

Course curriculum

1. load and reliability building construction
2. steel, characteristics, meaning steel construction in historical connections
3. proposal bearing construction, communications
4. palatal building
5. indoor construction
6. indoor construction, poles , tower
7. instances contemporary steel construction
8. timber work, characteristics, communications
9. drafting wooden construction
10.make - up wooden construction, design
11.examples using
12.aluminium construction

Aims

Understanding of the principle of system reliability, orientation in the impacts leading to a change in the stress-state of a structure, understanding of load and load bearing capacity of a structural element and of the whole structure. Gaining basic knowledge of wood and metal structures, needed for designing the supporting structure with regard to implementation.

Specification of controlled education, way of implementation and compensation for absences

Lectures are not obligatory, tutorials are obligatory - attendance at tutorials and the progress of work on semestral assignment are regularly monitored. Missed lessons can be made up for in another group or by individual arrangement with the teacher.
