Course content

An engineer must have good knowledge about materials and their potential and limitations. This involves a fundamental knowledge of environmental and material properties of materials and how they are related to the material structure. The course gives a basic introduction to the properties of the five main classes of materials: metals, ceramics, polymers, composites and natural materials with special focus on steel, concrete, wood and plastic materials.

Learning outcome

Knowledge:
The candidate will learn basic theory about main building- and construction materials. This will cover material composition, preparation, structure, properties, performance and applications in buildings and structures.

Skills:
The candidate should be able to make sensible and well-founded choice of materials.

General knowlegde:
The candidate should understand how properties of materials that are important in engineering can be related to the characteristics of the material.
