Course Description
In the context of the importance of building-material-environment relationship in architecture, the content of the course is covered with two basic approaches: Firstly, environmental factors that cause damage in the structure are explained and the damage mechanisms of these factors depending on the type of material are examined. Secondly, the measures that can be taken in structures against these environmental factors and the materials that can be used in protection are described. Protection methods and materials used are classified. In this context, bitum based materials, mineral based external plasters, latex based plasters and finishing systems, silicons, paints, pore filling chemicals, pastes, dilatation materials, water barrier bands, etc. materials are introduced and their applications are explained.
