Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Analyse the influence of water on particular types of building or rock materials Evaluate the physical influence of phase transitions of water on disintegration processes Set the limits of physical description of material using for analyses of material behaviour under various physical conditions Combine various kinds of description of interactions and physical processes Apply the proper physical models to solution of problems in practice

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The aim of the subject is to broaden both the theoretical pieces of knowledge on parts of physics with close relationship to the technical practice. The establishment of both the theoretical and practical knowledge in the sphere of material strength, hydrodynamics and thermodynamics with a direct linkage to the ageing processes and material disintegration, mechanical vibration and waves with a linkage to material disintegration and acoustics, electromagnetic radiation with a linkage to photometry and diagnostic methods based on electromagnetic radiation or radioactive materials. The attention is focused on building materials and/or rock materials and physical processes of their aging under various physical conditions. The subject inherently includes also the principles of various physical methods intended for diagnostics of materials and also both the classic and the non-traditional methods of materials processing, especially machining.

Compulsory literature:

Articles from journals indexed in Web of Knowledge and Scopus or other databases. The selection according to the key words related to the doctoral theses theme.

Recommended literature:

Articles from conference proceedings indexed in Web of Knowledge and Scopus or other databases. The selection according to the key words related to the doctoral theses theme.

Way of continuous check of knowledge in the course of semester
