Course objectives
Learning objectives and competences: Student gains basic checking of rocky environment (rock and weak rocks and soil) as co-operative background with the structure. The student will be acquainted with physical, mechanical and technological properties of rocks and their verification by laboratory and in situ tests in stress state of rocky massive. The student will be able to propose special in situ tests, measurements and monitoring ant to do basic check of stability of rock slopes and design of rock anchors. He will know the methods of complex building-geological survey, the design, realization and evaluation of them. * Appreciation of the rock environment as co-operative background with the structure. Physical-mechanical and technological properties verified by laboratory and in situ tests. Special field measurings. Strain and stress in rock mass. Stability of rock and weak rock slopes and walls. Improvement of the rock mass with grouting and anchoring (design and review). Geotechnical survey - evaluation of the building ground for civil structures, industrial structures, traffic structures and underground structures. Types and reasons of the landslides. Ground water and chemical status of water. Direct and indirect exploratory works (excerptions, mapping, geophysical survey, prospecting, laboratory and field tests and measuring). Classification of the rock mass and rock substances. * For credit students have to dispose the report of the geotechnical survey for the specific locality and the structure.
