Summary

Special engineering geology is an applied geology discipline that provides data indispensable to the design and geotechnical solution for engineering structures. The subject comprises theoretical and practical lessons covering Classification of foundation situation and soil foundation for build-up a civil, industrial, line, hydrotechnic, underground and other objects. The course also deals with assessment check of local state of their investigation, complexes of exploration methods, teleological engineering-geologic maps, forecast and risk rating resulted from rock environment and estimation of sources of current buildings accidents sources incurrenced by changes of foundation situation.
