Experience the basic characteristics of building environment, structure and materials which cannot feel in the desk works, for better understanding of the theories and design methods.
For the building environment, measurements of air conditioning, and illuminance are carried out.
For the building stricture, reinforced concrete, steel structure, material property experiments are carried out.
For the building material, tests on workability and strength of concrete, strength of timber materials and building coating materials are carried out.
I This course provides a method for obtaining the fundamental performance on the environmental engineering, structural engineering and building materials. Additionally it provides a technique for calibrating properties of the specimens.
II Experience the following items.
1．Environmental Engineering （Air condition, Illuminance）
2．Structural Engineering （Reinforced Concrete, Steel Structure, Material Property）
3．Building Materials （Workability and Strength of Concrete, Strength of Timber Materials and Building Coating Materials）
Enviromental Engineering, Structural Engineering, Building Materials
