Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main goal of this subject is to teach the students to describe and outline basic methods of geological research, to name individual kinds of boreholes and label methods which are used for their realization, and also to relate several types of these boreholes according to their purpose. On the basis of theoretical knowledge, obtained during study of this subject students have to know how to classify individual types of exploratory drilling works and to explain basic diferences in the construction of all exploratory borehole types. The student must be able to define individual fields of drilling work utilization with the aid of their theoretical study and within the frame of the practical and computation tutorials to apply obtained knowledge by solving scheduled tasks. The students develop step by step their konwledge obtained within the frame of the compulsory literature education and by use of recommended study literatury too. They have to know how to analyse and recollet material and immaterial information and to investigate it according to the importance degree. So created categorization of information they can use both during their study (inclusions, exams) and also in their next practical experience.

Summary

The subject offers a total review of the fundamental exploration methods, kinds of exploratory boreholes and technical means used for the realization of exploratory activities with a view to quarry drilling machines and drilling in conditions of the quarries. The significant part of the scheme of this subject is paid to drilling making use of the down-the-hole hammers, their construction and application methods in the course of their drilling activity. The students have also possibility to get acquainted with the new unconventional drilling methods used by borehole drilling in various spheres of human activity. The significant part of lectures is paid to some important problems connected with the realization of drilling works such as borehole (well) information acquirement and its evaluation, elementary space characteristics of the borehole course, directional drilling and underground drilling.
