Structural Building Physics

Structure

The knowledge of the physical aspects of building is necessary for designing, constructing, and retrofitting residential and commercial buildings. Physical characteristics of buildings are essential parts of all trades and can cause serious damage to buildings if ignored. The lecture will instruct students to gain a practical understanding of diverse structural damage and to find and explain technical solutions.

This lecture combines the topics of heat and sound insulation, moisture control, and fire protection, and focuses on constructional details within design, construction, and utilization of buildings.

The module “Structural Building Physics” contains a lecture portion and an exercise portion.

Important information: Basic information about the physical content of buildings will not be part of the module “Structural Building Physics”. It is strongly recommended to attend the lecture “Basics of Structural Engineering, Part 2”

Study attainment: all certifications for exercises

Exam attainment: exam (90 min)
