Energy conscious concept requires the design of building constructions with respect of their thermal properties, evaluation of indoor thermal comfort and energy efficiency of buildings. Windows and transparent parts of buildings are designed on the basis of hygro-thermal, acoustic and daylighting assessments to satisfy the low-energy concept of the whole building. Introduction to solving basic equation of stress analysis and introduction to basics of fracture mechanics with respect to structural materials: plain/reinforced concrete, high strength/performance concrete, ceramics, metals.
