Syllabus of lectures:

Physical monitoring of environmental variables. Measurement theory. Theory of measurement uncertainties. Principles of direct and indirect measurements. Fundamentals of electricity and magnetism. Principles of physical electronics. Measurement of various environmental and material parameters, e.g. noise and vibration, thermal conductivity coefficient, elastic modulus, temperature, etc.

Renewable energy sources: use of solar radiation, use of wind, biomass combustion, biofuels. Nuclear energy.

Syllabus of tutorials:

In groups, students will cycle through the basic tasks of monitoring physical quantities in building practice and the environment. These include measurements of density, noise and vibration, efficiency of thermal appliances, specific heat capacity and latent heat, temperature by various methods; thermal conductivity, modulus of elasticity, electrical resistance and capacitance of capacitors.

The students also measure in groups the efficiency of biomass combustion, the content of CO, CO2 and TZL in the flue gas, measure the intensity of solar radiation falling on the inclined surface, measure the characteristics of the PV cell and its dependence on temperature. They produce rapeseed oil methyl ester, measure the activity of radioactive substances in building materials.

Study Objective:

The aim of the course is to introduce students to practical applications of physics in the field of environmental engineering, especially the measurement of physical parameters of the environment and building materials.
