Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Student characterises rock materials from the physical point of view. He describes their physical properties and predicts material behaviour in various physical conditions. Student applies his knowledge for solution of model situations, analyses theoretical and experimental results and on that base he modifies practical applications or evaluates them.

Summary

The aim of the subject is to classify rock properties from the point of view of general and physics aspects, compare the individual properties in terms of their causes and explain their contexts, analyze acquired knowledge, deduce individual characteristics from individual laws and compile individual parts of teaching from literary and other sources. To consider the interrelationships between the properties of the rocks and their early and rheological behavior.

Physical properties of rock respective to sample size and state - influence of inner/outer factors on the rock properties. 3. Mechanical properties - density, elasticity, strength, plasticity and rheological behaviour of rocks. 4. Acoustic properties - dependence of characteristics on inner and outer factors. 5. Thermal properties - rules of heat transfer in rock, thermal dilatation of rocks. 6. Electrical and magnetic properties of rocks – polarisation, permitivity, permeability, electrical conductivity of rocks. 7. Electromagnetic radiation and rock – optical properties of rocks, X-rays and rock. 8. Radioactive radiation and rock – radioactivity of rocks, influence of radioactive radiation on rocks. 9. Multicomponent systems – equilibrium in one- and multicomponent system, metastable states, phase transformations. 10. Mutual relations – influence of the rock properties on physical phenomena, classification of rocks according to their physical properties.
