Summary

Engineering geology is an applied geology discipline that provides data indispensable to the design and geotechnical solution for mining engineering structures. The subject comprises theoretical and practical lessons covering the engineering geological characterisation of the geological environment, including an overview of used methods of engineering geological exploration; criteria for classifying rocks and rock masses according to engineering geological and geotechnical typological classifications; geodynamical processes, causes of origin, process mechanism, assessment, forecasting and risk analysis, exploration methodology for preventive and improvement measures, overview of regional engineering geological conditions, methodology for engineering geological mapping and the role of the sets of maps; foundations and principles of the processing and evaluation of results of specific engineering-geological investigation for underground structures, hydraulic structures, improvement, reconstruction and reclamation operations.

Subject syllabus:

Introduction - the importance, purpose and utilization. Engineering and geological characteristics of rocks, the criteria for specific and general classification, 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 importace, 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.
