Annotation The course "Buildings Elements Protection" meant practical skills and knowledge acquisition of building site sheltering structures of different kinds of factors of adverse effects. Deals with building materials originating the role in relation to their ability to not succumbing to the adverse environmental effects. Issue of building elements of protection solutions for engineering project design phase and operation sites in the course. Defined by different construction materials corrosion and destruction causing factors and this negative process of prevention measures..
Goals and objectives
of the course in terms
of competences and skills
To teach students of different construction materials and building elements and their potential damage to the root causes. Taught to distinguish between types of damage to building elements, which is due to spill over to the failure of building materials during the manufacturing process and the adverse environmental impacts of the facility during operation. Mastering modern building elements of protection systems and means.
