Utility Networks

Academic Year 2022/23

BPA002 course is part of 3 study plans

BPC-SI Winter Semester 1st year

BPC-MI Winter Semester 1st year

NPC-SIE Winter Semester 1st year

The course deals with conduit of utility networks (conduit of technical equipment) in general, especially underground networks. The general part includes basic concepts, network division, category and history. Students will be introduced with the standards and regulations of the topic, space arrangement of conduit of technical equipment. It will also be discussed designing of pipe networks (water supply, sewerage, heat, steam and gas) and cable lines (electricity system, telecommunication and data networks). From the aspects of building the student will be acquainted with pipes materials and methods of construction and rehabilitation of networks, especially in their underground storage.
