Faculty of Civil Engineering
Non-destructive testing, mortar, concrete, laboratory of wet processes, photogrametry
The history of the department goes back to 1954. Since that time The Department of Building Technology provides instruction in subjects including the Technology of Building Processes, Building Technology, Building-service Technology, Site Equipment Theory, Computer-Aided Preconstruction Design, Project Management, Preconstruction Design of Renovation, Environmental Protection During Construction, and Total Quality Management.
Research activities are mainly focused on the optimisation of site facilities, optimal usage of machines and multiple-machine groups, methods and criteria for optimum decision-making in preconstruction design, project and maintenance management, total building quality management, environmental protection during construction, biocorrosion of building structures, simulation models of building processes and non-destructive testing, techniques and procedures of building renovation.
In other years, the department led projects of applied research, namely FIBERDIST „Analysis of homogenity of fibers in fiber-reinforced concrete“; AFIDINCON „Analysis of distribution of steel fibers in real structures“; SLWA_DESORPT „Evaluation and model of water desorption from lightweight aggregate for internal curing in concrete“; Acceleration of concrete hardening using electric (resistance) wires;
