Summary

Engineering geology applied geology is a discipline that provides the indispensable documents for solutions to the design and geotechnical engineering objects. The course is theoretical and practical teaching, including geological environment characteristic of the IG report, including the EG survey methods used, criteria for the classification of rocks and rock massifs in the engineering and geotechnical typological classification; geodynamic processes, the causes of their origin, mechanism of processes, assessment, prognosis and risk analysis, Survey Methodology for preventive and remedial measures, overview of regional relationships EG, EG mapping methodology and the importance of map files, the foundations and principles for implementation and evaluation purpose EG survey, for example underground works, hydrotechnical facilities, rehabilitation, reconstruction and remediation work.

Subject syllabus:

Introduction - the importance, purpose and utilization. Engineering and geological characteristics of rocks, the criteria for the classification of general and specific, descriptive links between the physical and technological properties. Principles of laboratory tests and evaluation. The rock environments and IG characteristics: geological structure, discontinuity, stress, hydrogeology and geomorphology conditions - influence of behavior of rock mass and strength, deformation and stability properties. Geodynamic phenomena and processes - a mechanism causes the risk - prediction, prevention, rehabilitation. Principles of multi-purpose and special purpose EG maps - the importance of recovery. General principles of assessment of foundation conditions. A short summary of regional EG conditions in relation to geological structure, geomorphology, hydrogeology and anthropogenic activities.
