Code: 3607V025
Czech title: Teorie konstrukcí
English title: Theory of Construction
Study period: 4 years
Guarantee department: Department of Building Structures
Guarantee: prof. Ing. Radim Čajka, CSc.
Key words: buildings, reliability of structures, bridges, concrete, building environment
Branche profile: The field of study is prepared as doctoral programme following all master’s study programmes. It is focused on designing and realisation of difficult factory buildings, civil engineering, engineering and transport constructions. Education in theoretical disciplines, such as mechanics of materials, finite element method and dynamics, is extended during study. Gained knowledge is applied in structural subjects in the area of design, assessment and application of reinforced concrete, masonry, steel and timber structures and bridges according to national and European standards.
Vocational knowledge: - wide knowledge and understanding of structural mechanics and principles of structural design -wide theoretical knowledge (theory of elasticity, numerical methods, structural reliability concepts) - understanding of possibilities, of conditions and of limits of used methods and principles
Vocational skills: - resolve structural design problems with use of obtained knowledge - searching, sorting and interpretation of information’s needed for structural design task - use of basic research approaches (numerical modelling, experimental testing, data analysis) which are necessary to resolve of practical problems in structural design
Vocational competences: - ability to independent decision making (including cases when only partial data are available) - team work coordination including taking of responsibility for decisions and results - ability to give arguments convincing arguments to both specialists and public (in area of structural design) - ability to make conclusions from team member opinions - ability to use all obtained knowledge
Alumnus profile: Graduate is competent to be employed in building companies and design offices specialized in building, engineering and industrial load bearing structures, bridge design and building up, research companies and societies which develop software for design of load bearing structures.
