Subject syllabus:

Lectures: Urban planning, project documentation, legislation to implement exploration. Principles of projecting exploration Legislation. EG documents for calculating the carrying capacity, compressibility, stability of foundation soils. Conditions for digging pits, making embankments, trenches - dissolubility , workability, consolidating, etc. Methods of investigation and assessment of foundation conditions for: civil construction - residential units, buildings, utilities, industrial construction - heavy facilities, heating plant, cold storage, etc. communication construction - highways, roads, railways, bridges, underground structures - tunnels, underground caverns, hydrotechnical structures - dams, water pumping power plants, canals, waste dump. Exploration and evaluation of the geological environment for remediation of slope deformation, reclamation of undermined areas. Practice: Drawing up purpose EG maps from the results of drilling and geophysical survey - offering project. Bearing capacity and compressibility for the 1 geotechnical category. Calculation of the pit slope, cutting, embankment. Drawing up zonning maps and sections of highway. The calculation of critical pressure from water pressure tests. Project exploration operations for landslide remediation. The project survey work to select suitable sites for waste dumps. Assessment and evaluation of tenders projects to ensure the old dump.
