Information about final exam.

Basic information

Subject is taught  in  spring  semester only.
Weekly load: 2 hour lecture/week + 2 hour seminar /week
Scheduled time in spring semestr 2018/2019:
lectures: Thuersday, 14:00 - 15:50, A230
seminars: Thuersday, 16:00 - 17:50, A336 (Room changed!)


Main aim of course is giving information about the structure and properties of the building materials and about their testing methods on the base of the contemporary knowledge and materials ebgineering approach. The laboratory work (exercise) consist in the testing of building materials from the point of view of physically-chemical properties and their quality control.
