Synopsis:

Subject gives information on principles of designing and development of new types of materials having directed properties for specific building applications and structures.

Requirements:

No prerequisities

Syllabus of lectures:

Recognition of basic principles of formation of building materials structure that is in relation with material performance and properties.

Information on structure of substances, chemical, physical and physical-chemical bonds.

Material properties with respect to material structure.

Problems of rheological, physical, chemical and biochemical degradative processes in building materials, their cohesive and adhesive behaviour and molecular structures and bonds.

Most often used building materials and possibilities of the directed change of their properties.

Syllabus of tutorials:

1+2. Laboratory 1: Introduction, safety rules, basic principles of laboratory work, typical protocol. Sieving test - particle size distribution, sieving, llaser analysis of particle size.

3+4. Laboratory 2: Basic material parametres of porous building materials - determination of bulk density, matrix density, water content, total open porosity. Gravimetric method, vacuum absorption, pycnometry.

5+6. Laboratory 3: Water transport - absorptivity, determination of water content. Capacity methods, resistance methods, electromagnetic method, inversion analysis of concentration water profiles.

7+8. Laboratory 4: Water vapor transport in porous media, cup method without thermal gradient, determination of water vapor difusion coefficient and diffusion resistance factor.

9+10. Laboratory 5: Thermal properties of building materials. Determination of coefficient of thermal conductivity and thermal capacity in dry materials and in dependency on increasing water content. Impuls method application.

11+12. Laboratory 6: Dynamic viscosity, newton and non-newton liquids, Stokes rule. Determination of viscosity of liquids.

Study Objective:

The aim of the subject is the recognition of basic principles of formation of building materials structure that is in relation with material performance and properties. Students will obtain information on structure of substances, chemical, physical and physical-chemical bonds. Then will master also knowledge in material properties with respect to material structure. They will obtain also information on the most often used building materials and possibilities of the directed change of their properties.
