Synopsis:

Main study topics:

Theory of radon diffusion and convection through building materials, mathematical description, methods of solving transport equations

Physical parameters of building materials describing radon transport (radon diffusion coefficient, radon transmittance, radon resistance, radon diffusion length)

Methods of radon detection, the use of continuous radon monitors to study the transport of radon through building materials

The principle and construction of measuring devices suitable for study of radon transport through building materials and for determining the physical parameters describing this transport

Individual experiments conducted by students on selected building materials (for example waterproofing materials, thermal insulations, silicate materials etc.) in order to determine the values of selected physical parameters describing the radon transport and their dependence on temperature, moisture content, homogeneity, chemical composition, surface treatments, degree of degradation etc.

The experimental part of the subject will be partially realized using the measuring devices acquired with the financial support of the project OP VVV CZ.02.1.01/0.0/0.0/16_017/0002625.
