Summary

Předmět podává ucelené informace o polymerních materiálech používaných ve stavebním průmyslu. Zaměřuje se jak na pochopení základních principů ohledně chování těchto materiálů z hlediska chemického složení, vnitřní struktury, či morfologie, tak i na vlastnosti polymerů z hlediska jejich fyzikálně-mechanických vlastností a na možnosti jejich zpracování a výroby v návaznosti na jejich využití ve stavebnictví. Studenti se v rámci předmětu rovněž seznámí s nejvíce používanými polymery a jejich nejčastějšími aplikacemi.
