Learning Outcomes

Through this course students will become familiar with commonly used methods for the fabrication of tiles, bricks, cements, glass and porcelain fixtures for use in the built environment. Aspects relating to the selection and processing of raw materials will be studied and participants in this course will gain an in depth understanding of some of the most widely used industrial manufacturing processes in the world. The performance of materials in the built environment will be discussed and we will examine how materials and their processing can fill performance requirements with a minimal carbon footprint. We will become familiar with the history of diverse building materials from ancient time until the present and look at future trends in the design and processing of ceramic materials for construction. By the end of the course students will be better positioned to select appropriate building materials and design ceramic processes by considering the aesthetic, chemical and mechanical challenges involved in the diverse utilisation of ceramic materials in the built environment. In diesem Kurs lernen die Teilnehmer die gängigen Methoden zur Herstellung von Fliesen, Ziegeln, Zementen, Glas- und Porzellanarmaturen für den Einsatz in der gebauten Umgebung kennen. Aspekte in Bezug auf die Auswahl und Verarbeitung von Rohstoffen werden untersucht, und die Teilnehmer dieses Kurses erhalten ein tiefgreifendes Verständnis einiger der weltweit am häufigsten verwendeten industriellen Herstellungsverfahren. Die Leistung von Materialien in der gebauten Umgebung wird diskutiert und wir werden untersuchen, wie Materialien und ihre Verarbeitung die Leistungsanforderungen mit einem minimalen CO2-Fußabdruck erfüllen können. Wir werden uns mit der Geschichte der verschiedenen Baumaterialien von der Antike bis zur Gegenwart vertraut machen und zukünftige Trends bei der Gestaltung und Verarbeitung von Keramikmaterialien für den Bau untersuchen. Am Ende des Kurses werden die Studenten besser in der Lage sein, geeignete Baumaterialien auszuwählen und Keramikprozesse zu entwerfen, indem sie die ästhetischen, chemischen und mechanischen Herausforderungen berücksichtigen, die mit der vielfältigen Verwendung von Keramikmaterialien in der gebauten Umgebung verbunden sind.
