|Periodizität||jährlich wiederkehrende Veranstaltung|
|Kurzbeschreibung||After a presentation of the general environmental context and sustainability issues, this course will present the environmental impact of the different building materials and the technical possibilities to improve them.|
|Lernziel||After the lecture series, the students are aware of the main challenges for the production and use of building materials.|
|Inhalt||The lecture series is divided as follows:|
Lectures 1 to 3: In a first phase, the students study the LCA methodology and the software assiciated.
In a second phase 4 to10: the student learn the environmental impacts of different building materials and implement these calculations in a virtual building.
Finally, they work on the imporvement potentials of this building.
|Skript||For each lecture slides will be provided.|
|Literatur||Basic knowledge of environmental assessment tools is a prerequisite for this class.|
Students that have not done classwork in this topic before are required to read an appropriate textbook before or at the beginning of this course (e.g. Baumann&Tillman, The Hitch Hiker's Guide to LCA: An Orientation in Life Cycle ssessment Methodology and Applications, Studentlitteratur, Lund, 2004).
|Voraussetzungen / Besonderes||The lecture series will be conducted in English and is aimed at students of master's programs, particularly the departments ARCH, BAUG, ITET, MAVT, MTEC and USYS.|
No lecture will be given during Seminar week.
However, a particular interest in physical and chemical properties of building materials is recommended.
