Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Objective of the course in terms of learning outcomes and competences is to provide students with knowledge of designing underground works in all their complexity, starting with investor intent, feasibility studies, approval processes, solution of conflicts of interest, selection of contractors, valid legislation, design and realization phases of construction according to observation principles method, control activities, the final execution of the work, the operational circumstances of use and maintenance, the liquidation of the underground construction after the end of its use. The student acquires knowledge and overview of basic processes and contexts governing the construction and use of underground work that are the basis for applying BIM in the category of underground work construction.

Summary

The content of the subject is the knowledge of the main processes, which includes the construction cycle of the underground work, starting with the developer's intention to construct the work, feasibility studies, approval processes, solution of conflicts of interest, selection of contractors for environmental research, project elaboration for realization of the work, construction phase, connection of the construction site to the engineering networks and transport infrastructure, construction, inspection activities of the investor, designer, contractor and mining authority during construction, documentation of the actual execution of the work. Knowledge will support the preparation of the project in the BIM environment.

Subject syllabus:

Lecture topics: 1. Introduction 2. Preparatory processes 3. Input processes 4. Design and processing of the underground construction project 5. Preparation and processing of geotechnical documentation of the environment 6. Proposal of methods of realization and elaboration of implementation documentation 7. Site preparation 8. Realization of construction, management of construction by observation method and control processes of construction 9. Emergency response to the construction site, its impacts and conflicts of interest 10. Completion and handover of the building, documentation of the actual execution of the construction 11. Terms of use of the building and its maintenance 12. Disposal Practice topics: In the framework of the seminar, a semestral project will be prepared for the selected type of underground construction. The following topics will be dealt with in the project: - design of engineering geological survey for each level of project documentation - assessment of the suitability of the environment according to classification systems - design of the underground work profile - assessment of geostational stress in overburden (HPV effect) - Assessment of underground work load - Using numerical methods for the lining dimension - assessment of the effect of excavation on the surface - proposal for the monitoring of the excavation of the underground work
