Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The main goal of the course is to acquaint students with the properties of rocks and soils, which are necessary for tasks solved in mining geomechanics, geotechnics and similarly focused subjects in mining. The student will practically learn to measure and determine most of the discussed properties according to applicable standards and methods.

Summary

In this subject students are at the first acquaint with relation between rock mass – rock samples – rock specimen. Course continue by the chapters deal with physical properties, mechanical and technological properties of rocks and soils. There are definition of different rock properties, their measurement and using in practical calculations. Knowlege of properties of rocks are apply to Rock and Soil classification and stress strain behaviour of Rock masses and mathematical modeling.
