Teaching staff


During the course, the teacher will deal with students’ questions or concerns at the time and day established at the beginning of the course, but always subject to prior appointment. Questions and concerns can also be sent to the teacher’s email address at the University. 

Introduction

Individual work: This is aimed at the specific competence of the knowledge and development of the subject, and will try to create a first base of notes on the conventional construction systems and their pathology. Individual research consists in the carrying out of a work that develops the fundamental aspects related to the development of the subjects of the subject. Its objective is to work autonomously with responsibility and initiative, it is developed in two phases.

The practical work in group: Consists of the analysis, diagnosis and intervention in a building with pathologies. This is aimed at acquiring a knowledge of the construction pathologies and the methods and constructive techniques of application to conservation, restoration and rehabilitation. Likewise they will be developed to the practical knowledge of the building and civil works, with a supervision of the foundation, structure, work and finished work. The results of the evaluation of the building will be documented in the form of a report, in case it is a professional opinion.

Pre-course requirements

It is recommended that students should have passed the various Construction courses prior to Construction 6, although the Management Board of ESARQ is responsible for defining the enrolment criteria between courses.

Objectives

The objectives of the degree that particularly affect this subject are:

1. Aptitude to create architectural projects that satisfy the aesthetic demands and the techniques as well.

2. Understanding the problems of the structural, construction and engineering concept linked to the buildings projects; and adequate knowledge of the calculation of structures in their various materials.

3. Adequate knowledge of the physical problems and the different technologies, as well as the function of the buildings, so that these are provided with internal conditions of comfort and protection of climatic factors.

Competencies

  • 12-T - Ability to conceive, calculate, design, integrate in buildings and urban complexes and execute building structures
  • 15-T - Ability to conceive, calculate, design, integrate in buildings and urban complexes and execute foundation solutions
  • 17 - Ability to apply building and technical standards
  • 19 - Ability to preserve finished works.
  • 20 - Ability to evaluate works
  • 24 - To acquire adequate knowledge of the mechanics of solids, continuous medium and soil as well as the plastic, elasticity and resistance properties of materials for structural works

Learning outcomes

  • Applied knowledge of technical and constructive norms
  • Knowledge of the construction pathologies and the methods and constructive techniques of application to the conservation, restoration and rehabilitation, in the construction and civil works, foundations, structures, thick work and finished work.
  • Knowledge of the construction pathologies and the methods and constructive techniques of application to the conservation, restoration and rehabilitation, in the construction and civil works, foundations, structures, thick work and finished work.
