Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim is to extend the knowledge of geotechnical monitoring methods, their limiting factors, selection criteria, monitoring devices and methods of evaluation and interpretation of the results of the monitoring measurements. Doctoral student should pass this course to be able to set goals and possibilities of monitoring measurements for a given specific situation, propose appropriate monitoring project, evaluate the terms of the installation of individual monitoring devices, their reliability and explanatory power, and analyze and interpret the results of the monitoring measurements. One of the goals of the course is to acquaint students with the methods of back analysis and its use for the input data objectification of mathematical models.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations

Summary

The course is a detailed overview of modern methods of geotechnical monitoring, study of the principles of individual monitoring devices, the appropriateness of their use, their technical, installation and any other restrictions. The course is also the issue of the draft project-specific monitoring the real situation in terms of the objectives of monitoring, methodological appropriateness, technological and methodological difficulty of monitoring the implementation of measurement, proper evaluation and interpretation of results. An integral part of the teaching methods are also inverse analysis (the proximity of inverse analysis methods, direct optimization methods) and their practical application.
