Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of this course is to acquaint students with the basic structure and content underground engineering, completed his ties to the disciplines of building, and scientific.Lessons will be conducted so that students understand the basic principles of construction of underground works, he could apply those principles into practice and has obtained sufficient experience for employees construction management in a complex natural environment by analysis the knowledge of that environment.

Summary

The subject is the subject of follow-up to get together geotechnical knowledge of rock cutting, punching and reinforcement technology underground work and other disciplines. Apart from issues of basic design parameters underground construction (size, shape) deals mainly with issues modern methods of tunnels and caverns, supporting and evaluating their geological environment. Considerable attention is paid to the excavation of tunnels in difficult natural conditions (TBM, shield tunneling, jacking, mikrotuneling etc.). Subject closely related to the subject of "Mechanics of Underground Structures".
