Innovative building constructions
Summer term, SE, 2 semester hours, 3 ECTS, Franz Sam
The seminar imparts expertise on the interplay of construction elements in buildings for extreme demands and strains (extreme climatic conditions, high loads, extreme positions and assembly conditions, exceptional building dimensions and span of the load bearing structure, complex shapes, special material applications, etc.) A crucial criterion for innovative building constructions is efficiency (optimal relationship between effort and benefit). In particular, an awareness has to be created for a reasonable interplay between the selection of material and technology and the shape of the building parts and the building as a whole.
