Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The course studies the behavior of rock and especially soil bodies, which are either directly zeminovou structures or the environment in which the mining activities carried out or are in newly built structures in the direct contact. The introductory part of the course is devoted to the basics of soil mechanics, particularly for properties of rocks and soils and their behaviour under different conditions and under influence their own or external load. This theoretical part of the course solution followed by application of geotechnical engineering problems, including slope stability, earth pressures, filters, problems in the consolidation of soils, the general modelling in geotechnics and foundations and principles of geotechnical monitoring.

Summary

Obsahem předmětu je studium chování horninových a zejména zeminových těles, která jsou buď přímo zeminovou konstrukcí, nebo jsou prostředím, ve kterém je hornická činnost prováděna, nebo jsou s nově budovanou konstrukcí v přímém kontaktu. Úvodní část předmětu je věnována základům mechaniky zemin, zejména z hlediska vlastností hornin a zemin a jejich chování za různých podmínek a pod vlivem vlastního či vnějšího zatížení. Na tuto teoretickou část předmětu navazuje řešení aplikačních úloh geotechniky, k nimž patří stabilita svahů, zemní tlaky na konstrukce, filtry, úlohy z oblasti konzolidace zemin, obecné modelování v geotechnice a princip a základy geotechnického monitoringu.

Grain size composition, organic matter and CaCO3. 3rd Physico-chemical properties. The limits of consistency, the number of plasticity Consolidation. 4th Mechanical properties. Strength and deformation characteristics. Resources strength of rocks. The principle of effective stress. 5th Soil compressibility, compression modulus. laboratory tests and in situ. 6th Soil Consolidation, consolidation of the course. 7th Rock strength. Laboratory and field testing, evaluation. 8th The water in the rocks, Darcy's law, coefficient of filtration - identifying, hydrodynamic forces in rocks, soil liquefaction - sufóze, frost. 9th Tension and stress in the rock body. Types of stress. Tension in rock from the body's own weight and the surcharge. 10th Classification of rocks for engineering purposes. Classification system for the Geotechnics. 11th Solution application of geotechnical engineering problems. - Modeling in Geotechnics. Laboratory, physical and numerical modeling. Model assumptions and their validation. Design of geotechnical structures. - Slope stability - methods for solving the stress and deformation of rock bodies. Short-term and long-term stability. Remediation of Landslides and methods of increasing slope stability. - Pressures on soil structure. Earth pressure at rest, active and passive earth pressure. - Filters, criteria for designing filters. - Methods of treatment properties of rocks. Compaction of soil - compaction methods. Control of consolidation. Exercise: During the semester, students go through some form of exercise. Their goal is to acquaint students with procedures for determining characteristics of rocks, with the classification rocks for engineering purposes and methods of calculation, respectively. computational solution models, application of geotechnical engineering problems. Forms of exercise are the laboratory (laboratory geotechnical engineering) and computational (classrooms, respectively. mathematical modelling laboratory). Tasks carried out in laboratory exercises: - Specific weight and bulk soil - Grain size analysis - a grading curve - Atterbergovy bounds consistency - Oedometrická test (packaged unit) - Proctor test (standard Proctor) Tasks carried out in the computer exercises: - Identifying and descriptive of the physical properties of rocks from the specified values - Classification and the classification of rocks according to ČSN 73 1001 from the assigned values - Solving problems in the consolidation of soils, stresses in the subsoil of the surcharge - Preparation and solution of a mathematical model given geotechnical problems (stability slope, you rock stress in the body of the surcharge, etc.).
