Technology of Prefabricated Structures

Academic Year 2022/23

BJA016 course is part of 1 study plan

BPC-SI Winter Semester 1st year

Further to special subjects - the technology of prefabricated units and the utilization of building materials including the suitability of building them up into the structure of building objects is discussed. A systematic survey of present assortment of prefabricated units. A brief description of the performance of the technology of housing and industrial and transport building, especially of up-to-date erection. Housings: the possibility of constructions using prefabricated units, and the combination of these prefabricated units with classical in-situ building technologies. Industrial building: the possibilities of monolithic structures formed by means of system formwork in combination with prefabricated units. Transport building: building of both monolithic and assembled bridges. The present possibilities of the utilization of the assembled units in the reconstruction of building structures. Deviations and tolerances in building industry, further trends in the development of prefabricated technology. Demands concerning the quality and dimensions accuracy in the production of prefabricated units, trends of development in the branch of prefabrication.
Lecture block is added by exercise lessons, which contain excursion to real structure, where the construction aspect is apparent to extend the knowledge of students.

Objective

Extension of knowledge in the subject Technology of Building Elements Manufacture and following application of precast units in used systems of prefabricated structures in structural buildings, the student becomes orientation in used erecting works utilizing prefabrication. Importance strengthening of technical and organizational level correspondence in manufacture of precast units and in assembling methods for prefabricated units on the quality of construction work

Knowledge

The student would manage the goal of the subject by acquiring knowledge on the used systems of mounted frames of constructions – factory buildings and civil buildings and engineering constructions.
