2. Objectives and learning outcomes
2.1 Objectives
During the course, students become acquaineted with the behavior of each material at high and low temperetures. Within the framwork of the course, we als cover rheology with time-dependent properties such as creep, shrinkage and relexation, we also deal with the reological propertise of self-compacting concretes.
2.2 Learning outcomes
Upon successful completion of this subject, the student:
A. Knowledge
  1. knows the behavior of buildings materials at high and low temeperatures
  2. know the effect of tempereture on changes in the properties of materials
  3. know the reollogical properties of materials (relaxation, creep, shrinkage)
  4. know the measurment methodes for self-compacting concretes, tehier principles and reological aspects
B. Skills
  1. is able to recognize and identify the hazards of building materials under fire or low temperatures,
  2. apply the selection of different measurement and evaluation methods efficiently and reasonably,
  3. knows the types of deformation of building materials over time, can count on them and knows their effect on the structure.
  4. is able to apply his / her knowledge in solving specific tasks.
C. Attitudes
  1. eeks to learn about the structures taught in principle on the ground and
  2. to apply the practice of field research,
  3. trives for accurate and error-free problem identification and assessment
D. Autonomy and Responsibility
  1. independently assesses problems,
  2. openly accepts substantiated critical remarks,
  3. takes a systemic approach to its thinking.
2.3 Methods
Lectures, communication in writing and orally. Case study processing.
2.4 Course outline
WeekTopics of lectures and/or exercise classes
1Introduction, concepts overview
2Basic rheological models
7Classification of building materials according to the standard and the possibilities of their classification. Test methods used for qualification
8Behavior of concrete at high temperatures (strength characteristics, porosity, deformation). Effect of chemical and physical processes at high temperatures in concrete on mechanical properties.
9Behavior of steel at high temperatures. Possibilities of fire protection of steel structures.
10Behavior of wood at high temperatures.
11Behavior of plastics at high temperatures. Possibilities and limitations of using plastics.
12Behavior of reinforced concrete structures at high temperatures.

The above programme is tentative and subject to changes due to calendar variations and other reasons specific to the actual semester. Consult the effective detailed course schedule of the course on the subject website.

3.5 Grading system
GradePoints (P)
excellent (5)85% =<T
good (4)74 % <= T < 85%
satisfactory (3)63 % <= T <74%
passed (2)50 % <= T < 63%
failed (1)50% <T
3.6 Retake and repeat
For the first time during the diligence period, the locker can be replaced or repaired free of charge. In case of correction, the more favorable of the previous and the new result for the student is taken into account.
If the student is not able to obtain a grade other than insufficient with the replacement according to point 1, he / she - in addition to paying the fee specified in the regulations - will make a second attempt to correct the unsuccessful first replacement.
