Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Students will learn about the possibilities of using these materials, their advantages and on the contrary properties and factors limiting their practical use. Also included are wood-based materials and products. Wood is a typical representative of renewable resources and its products are historically among the most frequently used building materials.

Summary

Předmět se zabývá zejména nekonvenčními materiály, které jsou využívány, případně mají potenciál k využití napříč celým stavebním průmyslem, od samotných surovin, přes alternativní pojiva, druhotné suroviny, nebo zejména rychleobnovitelné suroviny rostlinného či živočišného původu. Studenti se seznámí s možnostmi využití těchto materiálů, jejich výhodami a naopak vlastnostmi a činiteli omezujícími jejich praktické využití. Součástí předmětu jsou také materiály a výrobky na bázi dřeva. Dřevo je typickým zástupcem obnovitelných zdrojů a výrobky z něj patří historicky mezi nejčastěji využívané stavební materiály.
