- Spent the rest on the FEM» (At most 15 hours/week)
- FEM needed much time.» (At most 15 hours/week)
- It is rather interesting to work with actual field problem but I think this subject should be expanded to more feld problems than just housing as most of examples we solved were related to walls and slabs in houses. » (Around 25 hours/week)

- Felt to bee very much the same information as at the power points.» (25%)
- Ingen idé att gå dit eftersom inte lärarna engagerar sig i föreläsningen, utan istället bara står med ryggen mot publiken och läser direkt från powerpoint-texten. Det verkade inte finnas någon kommunikation mellan lärarna, då man fick lyssna på samma föreläsning från olika lärare.» (25%)
- The way and the method all teachers tackled this first time subject was quite nice and it is due to them that I realized that heat and moisture control is to waht extent important to our structures.» (100%)

4. To what extent did you reach the follwoing goal?

After the course the student should be able to critically evaluate different building materials and combinations of materials for its functional properties with regard to exposure of heat and moisture, including influence from degradation mechanisms.

- swedish students have already done some of these laborations in earlier course» (Some extent)
- Practical: It"s good to see things in reality but there is to little time to think about what is really done. Mainly I just follow directions and then it"s done. Computer: good to see the programs but I would have needed more help. I think you should have the introduction to the programs in a computer room.» (Some extent)

- The problem is always in dealing with handout, as it some times becomes so mess that one forgets something to print. The better idea which I think and may be wrong is that there should be one folder for each week and number of days in that folder with the material in each days folder. All general data plus about the course should be placed in appropriate separate folders in the main page beside week folders.» (Rather well)
- Especially the handouts should be put on the homepage att least 2-3 days before the lecture is hold to be able to prepare yourself for the lecture this should be done in all courses» (Rather well)

- All teatchers was away the week before examination so they couldn´,t answer questions » (Very poor)
- OK during most of the time but no teachers were available during the last week. I think its very strange for the course administrator to be on vacation when alot of people are studying for the exam and need answers to their questions.» (Very poor)

- It was so low so that it was very easy to put focus on the FEM (which needed all the time and that study period will be awful if you raise the work load and they don"t decline their, but your course is interesting and deserves time to)» (Low)
- Since in some mid weeks the burden of assignment works accumulated from FEM bascics also but it soothed at the end.» (Adequate)

- As in FEM basics we have a project from moisture flow through a wall corner. This thing connected us with our H&M course concepts.» (Adequate)
- Projects and assignments in both courses that needed alot of time.» (Too high)

20. To what extent were there connections between the two courses in this study period?

- The FEM was mainly about learning the tool and the HaME was about learning about moisture transport-no connection is needed. They tried but used different equations and more simplifications so the connection was mainly on the paper.» (Very small extent)
- Almost no interaction between the courses. The FEM-project didn´,t give anything to the HM-course» (Very small extent)
- one project was about heat conduction, so the heat and moisture was included somewhen in the fem course. no fem-things were included in the heat and moisture course but maybe that is just understandable.» (Rather small extent)

Summarizing questions

Adequate»7 24%
Good»5 17%
Excellent»1 3%

Genomsnitt: 2.37

- Put more focus on other materials, esp mineral wool. Talk more about real problems and mix the theoretical pieces with this. You can use all the scheduled time. Tang needs to speak slower and more focused and mix his theory with practical examples.» (Poor)
- very much repetition from earlier courses» (Fair)
- But, the teachers can still work on their lectures, trying to make them more interesting and maybe try something else than powerpoint.» (Good)

22. What should definitely be preserved to next year?

- The topic of the course. The practical lab.»
- the labs »
- The exercises were good and is was good to learn to use the Torka and the kfx programs»
- Some course litterature would be very good to have!»
- The home works and lab work»
- the processes that have been presented on the powerpoint as course litterature should also be explained in written style in order to get a better understanding»
- inget»
- The 2nd home project»

23. What should definitely be changed to next year?

- The project, either more or preferrably skip it (we always have projects and it"s getting a problem since it takes a lot of time to get a group to work and mainly we just learn about our own project and put the rest of the information from lectures aside), and talk about houses in general. More materials, less concrete. »
- not only slides as study material, too many slides to handle. Could have moore example exercises to learn from»
- have to get some course literature »
- As I exemples should be broadened from more fields in Civil Egnieering.The exemples should be more recent. There should be more use of computer tasks I mean some more assignments in TORKA S and Kfx Excel Sheet.»
- The litareture could be made better, it could be better orginised, often the same slide was used over and over.»
- Some of the guest lecturers seemed less important»
- explain examples and difficult theory more (moisture capacity f.ex.) and spare repetition of easy things. Two tasks from the exam were just done one week before the exam itself. - this should bot be. »
- Bättre föreläsningar. Tydligare instruktioner om vilka projekt som skall göras. Inte hitta på massa små meningslösa inlämningar. Ge ut någon slags kurslitteratur. »
- The interaction with FEM»
- better literature so you can study by yourself»
- Course literature are needed.»

24. Additional comments

- There seems to be too little of a line to follow in the course. It"s all about the same things but still it gets confusing.»
- No »
- Vad är det för mening att hålla föreläsningar om man endast läser vad som redan står på powerpoint-presentationen?»
- Interesting material bad very uninteresting delivery of it.»
