Course specification

Course is active from 11.09.2007..

Introducing students to the basic principles of ecologically sustainable construction, regulations in the field of environmental protection, basic principles of passive solar architecture, methods of construction with natural materials and construction measures for fire protection of buildings.
The student is able to make ecological analysis of existing buildings, and designs for future objects, as well as to make ecological valorization of spatial and urban plans. The student is also able to make fire analysis of the buildings, as well as to calculate the needed resistance class of the building to the fire.
Environmental protection measures in spatial planning. Basic spatial-planning principles of ecologically proper construction. Classical models of spatial city structure, Solar urban planning, Reconstruction and revitalization of the settlement, Macro fire sectors, Planning the village. Construction materials – environmental rating. Criteria for ecological assessment of materials, Energy aspects, Durability of materials and building elements, Material behavior at high temperatures, Natural radionuclides in construction materials, New materials – phase-changing materials. Building constructions – environmental assessment. Basic principles of environmentally proper construction, Ecology housing, Energy aspects of the construction of buildings, Bioclimatic and solar architecture, Basic types of self-heated objects. Healthy buildings, Seismic aspects in construction. Fire protection. Technical regulations in the field of fire protection. Euro codes and introduction of fire analysis, Construction measures of fire protection.
Lectures are auditory, illustrating all theoretical units with many practical examples. All topics are connected in the graphic work – preliminary design of the ECO house, which is done after the lectures in the field of construction and which is due before theoretical part of the examination, as a prerequisite.
