Summary

The subject developes knowledge of fundamental of the rock and soil materials. The both material types create natural structures in which construction activities are commonly carried out or they also closely interfere to manmade structures. Introductory lectures refer to the ground properties, ground classification systems and fundamental constitutional laws of their behaviour when subjected to the internal or external force acting. The theoretical part after succeed chapters notifying the application tasks widely met in the geotechnical engineering, praxis such as slope stability engineering, earth pressures against supports, ground filters, drainage building pits, compaction, consolidation, ground treatment, modelling, and monitoring. The undergraduate will gain knowledge about the rock and soil mechanics as an source information for the geotechnical engineering praxis. He will learn to solve the geotechnical tasks involving in stress strain and failure behaviour of ground structures.
