      The goalThe aim of the course is to provide the students the knowledge of basic chemical processes that occur during the production and use of building materials based on clay, plaster and cement binder, to point out the influence of process parameters on the properties of the obtained materials, as well as to enable the students to master the methods of characterization, control quality and environmental protection during the building materials manufacturing.
      The outcomeThe course introduces to the students the characteristics, structure and procedures of the synthesis of building materials.
      Contents of lecturesSpecial attention is paid to high-temperature processes that occur during the production of this material, as well as the influence of process parameters on the structure and properties of building materials. ;
      Contents of exercisesWithin the exercises and writing the seminar students will master the processes of synthesis and characterization building materials.
