This module seeks to develop an understanding of these fundamental principles and properties which will provide a secure foundation for studies in subsequent years and will allow the student to analyse and appreciate building performance from a sound base of knowledge and rational explanation. This module is an important building block for all the higher level work in building technology. AIM: To develop an understanding of the fundamental scientific principles and properties that govern the behaviour and performance of building materials and thermal performance of buildings. LEARNING OUTCOMES: On successful completion of this module the successful student will: KNOWLEDGE AND UNDERSTANDING K1 Knowledge of physical processes applied to building materials K2 Control technical conformance of materials INTELLECTUAL QUALITIES I1 Assess technological factors affecting designs PROFESSIONAL/PRACTICAL SKILLS P1 Use of relevant standards and equipment ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ © UNIVERSITY OF ULSTER at Jordanstown, Faculty of Engineering, SCHOOL OF THE BUILT ENVIRONMENT, Sept 2006 2
