CO2 emissions and their impact on the assessment of sources in buildings

19.3.2018 | Ing. Jiří Novotný, Fakulta strojní, ČVUT v Praze, doc. Ing. Tomáš Matuška, Ph.D., Univerzitní centrum energeticky efektivních budov, ČVUT v Praze
One of the most well-known and most important greenhouse gases is carbon dioxide (CO2), which arises from natural processes, but the burning of carbonaceous fuels, especially fossil fuels, contributes significantly in the last century. This text focuses on CO2 emissions associated with energy transformations for the supply of energy to buildings.

Projecting weak current III. – fire and lightning safety

19.3.2018 | Ing. Tomáš Mikula
It is taken as given that fire safety rules for buildings do not concern those who install electric devices that are not for fire protection. But that is a big mistake. Fire safety rules for buildings concern everybody who is in an interaction with the building in any way. And lightning protection is disregarded as well.

Shell Construction

Development of polymer concrete with the content of waste glass usable in the repair of concrete structures

19.3.2018 | Ing. Jakub Hodul, Ing. Jana Hodná, prof. Ing. Rostislav Drochytka, CSc.,, Ústav technologie stavebních hmot a dílců, Fakulta stavební, Vysoké učení technické v Brně, Centrum AdMaS
Within this work possibility of using four kinds of waste glass as a replacement for the commonly used filler, silica sand DORSILIT, to epoxy based polymer concrete (PC) is experimentally verified. Determination of compressive and flexural strength, chemical resistance and thermal resistance is examined in order to find out if PC containing waste glass as filler can be used for rehabilitation of concrete structures. Even based on the results of the tests it will be assessed whether it is possible replace DORSILIT by waste glass.

Determination of vertical forces from load of a wooden high-rise building

19.3.2018 | Ing. Luděk Vejvara, Ph.D., Západočeská univerzita v Plzni, Katedra mechaniky
The magnitude of the load on the walls of tall wooden constructions can be assembled according to the existing standards according to the valid combination equations in several ways. There are differences between the results. Determining the appropriate procedure for determining vertical strength from construction in different parts of building preparation and comparing it with other options is the subject of this paper.
