Course abstract

Depending on the master student’s research direction, technology of the research material production, its properties and usage have to be acquired. As a sample master students study production technologies of porous materials and necessary conditions for qualitative production of heat insulation and acoustic materials. Students acquire knowledge and skills on reological and technological properties of composites, as well as materials’ structure, physical and mechanical properties dependence on used technology.

Learning outcomes and their assessment

Master students have acquired extended knowledge and skills on properties of building materials, their testing methods. Ability to implement research in the fields of various building materials, especially in production technology of heat insulation and acoustic materials, their properties and usage. Ability to assess research results and make proposals for their practical usage.
