Summary

The subject Methods and methodics of Engineering Geological Survey is focused to Principles of laboratory methods, instrumentations, demands on sample taking and treatment. Students will gain comprehensive information about the principles of in-situ tests and instrumentation. Acquired information and knowledge will be able to apply in interpretation of test data, transformational relationships between results of single methods and in the interpretation and presentation of results of exploration methods. They will be able to prepare project of exploratory works and methodical progress built-up on principles of teleological effectiveness, complexity and optimisation.
