The aim of the course:
The course will introduce students to cobblestone paths with a particular focus on thickness design. In particular, calculation principles and approaches are considered important for the type of coating applied in organized industrial zones.
Learning OutcomesCTPOTOA
Upon successful completion of the course, the students will be able to :
LO - 1 : Cobblestone pavements will be defined, section drawing and elements will be learned.6,101,5,
LO - 2 : They will be able to realize the selection of block thicknesses in accordance with the purpose.6,101,5,
LO - 3 : They will learn different knitting styles.6,101,
LO - 4 : Will be able to design cobble stone road6,101,
CTPO : Contribution to programme outcomes, TOA :Type of assessment (1: written exam, 2: Oral exam, 3: Homework assignment, 4: Laboratory exercise/exam, 5: Seminar / presentation, 6: Term paper), LO : Learning Outcome
