The course is based on TBA190 (Wooden Buildings) and will cover some of the topics introduced there more thoroughly. Special emphasis is placed on indoor climate, ventilation and energy conservation in buildings. In addition, the following topics will be covered: acoustics and fire protection.
The students are to acquire knowledge of the most important principles of good house building technique. Through knowledge of the physics of buildings and the most important building materials, the students should be able to construct the various parts of houses and simple industrial buildings.
Lectures. Seminars/colloquia with teacher present. Independent work on exercises. Independent study.
Description of curriculum is posted on Canvas. This builds on the syllabus of TBA190 (Trehus), include selected data sheet in Building knowledge systems (bks from SINTEF Byggforsk, electronic version) and/or Thue: Bygningsfysikk and some other publications.
TBA190 or corresponding ! Reverse order, TBA210 before TBA190 is not recommended
Exercises and excursion. The exercises must be handed in for approval at least one week before the examination.
With 8 or more students: 3 hour written exam.
With fewer than 8 students: oral exam.
Note: A continuation exam may be given as oral exam even if the main exam was written. All examinations during the semester must be passed
For a course of 10 credits, 250 hours of work in total is normally to be expected. That means that in addition to structured teaching, ca. 15 hours of work must be expected per week.
Special requirements in Science
Type of course:
Lectures: 52 hours (4 hours per week). Exercises: 26 hours (2 hours per week). Excursion takes place in lecture hours.
The external and internal examiner jointly prepare the exam questions and the correction manual. The external examiner reviews the internal examiner's examination results by correcting a random sample of candidates exams as a calibration according to the Department's guidelines for examination markings.
