Building Constructions 3 (E)

Academic Year 2022/23

BHA016 course is part of 2 study plans

BPC-SI Winter Semester 1st year

BPC-MI Winter Semester 1st year

The course continues with deepening of fundamental knowledge in the field of building design. It focuses on roofs, describes various types of roofs, applicable materials, principles of design, etc. The course also introduces building envelopew, their types and variants with regard to elimination of heat losses.

Objective

The subject is focussed on the presentation of selected building constructions to give overall information about the design of these constructions in structural and material variants and about the system of the project documentation.


Knowledge

Student is able to complete the design of smaller buildings with simple structure and orientation in the building project documentation.

Syllabus

1. Roofs: General classification of roofs, main structural components, drainage. Materials appliable in individual layers of roofs. Classification of warm flat roofs.
2. Warm flat roofs: Design principles, drainage specifics, material variants, roofing layers.
3. Cold flat roofs: Design principles, drainage specifics, material variants, roofing layers, design of ventilation. Truss girders.
4. Purlin roof trusses: Classification, carpentry joints, design of valleys and gables. Design of monopitch roofs.
5. Modern roof trusses. Composition of roofing above attic spaces.
6. Most common roofing materials: design and application.
7. Tinsmith works and products. Assembly details of flat and pitched roofs.
8. Assembly details of warm and cold flat roofs, pitched roofs, and roof claddings.
9. Assembly details of warm and cold flat roofs, pitched roofs, and roof claddings.
10. Building envelope: Terminology, functions, design principles and boundary conditions.
11. Envelope walls: Design principles of single-leaf sandwich walls with external (or internal) positioning of thermal insulation. Materials and construction processes applied in external thermal insulating composite systems (gluing, anchoring and rendering).
12. Envelope walls: Design principles and materials of single-leaf walls.
13. Lightweight metal-plastic curtain walls: Classification, application, materials and anchoring.

Prerequisites

The subject is related to Building Engineering 1 (BH001) and Building Construction 2 (BH058). The student must be able to prepare the project documentation (ground plan, section and ceiling construction, without staircase) for the realization of the building, knowledge of the type and properties of the soil, the static action of the structure on the subsoil (subject-soil mechanics and founding), the thermo-technical and acoustic properties of building materials.
