Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim is to inform students with principal steps of silicate construction materials production technology, i.e. especially binders, ceramics, melting rocks, including thermal and noise insulations, glass and alkali-activated materials. (geopolymers). The stress is put on the phase and micro structural changes during production process that can influence material properties.
