AbstractBuilding Materials - Structure, Quality, Usage

concrete and other mineral materials
metals, wood, glass and polymers
ecological aspects
ObjectiveThe lecture describes the fundamental properties of the most important construction materials: concrete and other mineral materials, metals, wood, glass and polymers. Furthermore, the content includes the relevant ecological aspects such as availability of raw materials, effort for production, emission of hazardous substances, disposal and recycling are treated as well.
