Course detail

Reconstruction of Building

FAST-AH051Acad. year: 2020/2021

Building-technical and building-historical research of the building and determination of structural technical and humidity condition of objects. Taking measure and drawing current state of the object. Dentification characteristic failure and defects of buildings, by external sign, analysis of failure causes in relation to external and internal factors. Specificity of modern projection, reconstructions and rebuild of objects.
Failures and reconstruction of masonry construction, concrete (reinforced) and wood construction. Rehabilitation of higher objects humidity. Development of building laws in Bohemia and Moravia in relation to historic used construction systems and principles. Teaching is continuously attend of selected sample realized solution of building reconstruction and rehabilitation.
