Objective (expected results of study and acquired competences)

The aim of the course "Experimental Testing on building Materials" is to give an insight into the subject of building material testing. In particular, the determination of material-specific properties for building materials in the field of structural and civil engineering.
The graduates are able to apply the legal framework in relation to construction products.
Graduates are able to follow the development in this field by means of technical literature.
Graduates are able to independently plan and carry out various testing tasks to determine material parameters on the basis of normative documents and regulations.
Graduates are able to design and assess fastening systems.
