Welcome to NPTEL project, building materials and construction. This is module one and in the module one we shall be dealing with function of building, requirements of functional requirements of building, types of loads and role of materials. The course is on materials and construction. The first thing we got to understand is the role of materials and to understand the role of materials, it is necessary to understand what are
the functions of buildings and structures and that is why, this module includes this four components, okay

So, general outline of the course, we can look into like functions of buildings and structures, as I mentioned just now, followed by types of loads and structures, then functional requirements of buildings, because load is one issue in case of buildings and structures. But there are functional issues, so we shall be discussing functional

requirements of buildings, and then from this it will follow automatically the role of materials. So, starts with function of buildings
