Annotation:
Lighting should be understood as complex issue, overlapping between technical and non-technical disciplines. Newly adopted European standard on daylight in buildings introduces new approaches to assess the quality of the lighting environments in buildings; a number of new technologies and tools are available to measure and optimize lighting inside and outside buildings. Using these tools, the tasks focus on providing visual comfort, controlling for health aspects and taking into account the use of the room. A suitable compromise is sought between numerous requirements of the quality of the indoor environment, energy, economic and operational parameters. The practical use of the measuring instruments is an important part of the course in the determination of selected lightning technical quantities and parameters. Illuminance, luminance, the property of a material to transmit light, the influence of pollution, the influence of light reflection etc. count among them.

Semiotics, the science of character, based on the interpretation of W. Morris, F. de Saussure, in Ch. Jenckse. Phenomenology as an alternative way of interpreting architecture perceived as existential and lived space, based on the philosophy of E. Husserl and M. Heidegger, in architecture by K. Lynch and Ch.Norberg Schulz. Iconology dealing with the symbolism and significance of the construction work (E. Panofsky, etc.). Tendencies based on recent knowledge of the relationship between architecture and the digital age (W. Maas - MVRDV, Rem Koolhaas, BIG, etc.). Contemporary issues: architecture and public space, scenology, architecture and fine arts.

The aim of the course is to acquaint students with the principles of ensuring fire safety of buildings using advanced methods of fire modeling, heat transfer to the structure and the behavior of the structure at elevated temperature when exposed to fire. Teaching is focused on the use of numerical modeling by the method of zone models and CFD (Computational Fluid Dynamics) used for the calculation of temperature field, FEM (Finite Element Modeling) used for the calculation of heat transfer and mechanical behavior of structures, which include both parts of the calculation. In the part focused on numerical modeling is also highlighted the issue of inputs into software tools.

Annotation:
Critical Zone is defined as a thin layer of the Earth’s surface and near-surface terrestrial environment from the top of the vegetation canopy, or atmosphere–vegetation interface, to the bottom of the weathering zone, or freshwater–bedrock interface (US National Research Council, 2001). A variety of physical, chemical and biological interactions between the biotic and abiotic constituents of the critical zone occurs over a range of spatial and temporal scales. These interactions determine near surface fluxes of mass, energy and momentum and control transport and cycling of water, carbon and other chemicals. Understanding critical zone processes is an important prerequisite for the prediction of the consequences of surface pollution, climate change impacts and land use adaptation effects. The course aims at making students understand basic principles facilitating the quantitative description of the state and flow of water and transport of dissolved chemicals and energy in the critical zone, with emphasis on the processes crucial for the soil–plant–atmosphere system. The course covers the topics of parameterization of soil and plant hydraulic properties; formulation of governing equations of water flow, solute transport and heat transfer; initial and boundary conditions of the governing equations and basic measurement techniques. Specific attention will be paid to the individual hydraulic and transport processes, such as: infiltration, evaporation, redistribution, capillary rise, plant root water uptake, sap flow and plant transpiration, surface and subsurface stormflow, preferential flow and transport of contaminants in the soil profile.

Annotation:
The activity of running surface water in terms of morphological changes of the Earth's surface can be definitely viewed as a dominant factor. River landscape is among the most dynamically developing landscape features. The subject therefore focuses on areas that determine the major potential in the transformations and development stages of watercourses. The key hydrological theme of the study will be the concept of a dominant channel flow and pulse changes due to flood flows. Furthermore, the natural development stages of water channels and river floodplain will be studied, which can be documented by direct field observations, simple laboratory experiments, or remote sensing monitoring methods. Attention will be paid not only to qualitative descriptive ways of transport processes and morphological changes but also to the ways of their quantification or dynamic processes in their modelling. The course will also focus on the role of human activities in the context of negative and positive influences on natural morphological processes in river system. The main area for active participation of the students within this course is the study and analysis of mutually influencing natural or anthropogenically induced factors within the application of a dynamic model of morphological development. Students will be motivated to prepare a state of the art report in the given field fluvial morphology or to prepare a simple demonstration experiment in order to explain fluvial response to induced changes. Other areas include streambank stability, the main factors and processes leading to bank failures, monitoring of fluvial changes, stabilization and bank protection measures, the connection between the erosion of the bed and the banks of the bed and demonstration methods. The course is also open to other related topics brought by students themselves, such as the relationship between river morphological processes and animal and plant communities in flowing waters (renaturation and instream habitat restoration).
