Polymers in Civil Engineering / Polymers in Architecture / Polymers in Mechanical Engineering

(Winter semester)

Qualification targets

The students acquire profound knowledge on chemical, physical and mechanical behavior of the different types of polymers as well as their application and possible damages in construction. This will allow them to make suitable decisions for materials for the case on hand as well as to avoid damages during the planning and execution.

Contents

The focus will be on:

  • Composition
  • Production and processing of polymers including aspects of energy balance
  • Strength and deformation behavior
  • Physical qualities
  • Chemical resistance
  • Ageing and weather conditions
  • Special features concerning the application of polymers in the field of new buildings and restoration
  • Damages in polymers and how to avoid them
