Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of this course is to acquaint students with methods of measuring stress and strain state mountain range, especially in areas affected by mining parts and transfer those measurements continuous monitoring.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations
Project work


Subject deals with measurement methods of stress and deformation state of rock mass, mainly than in areas, which are influenced by mine workings, by transmition of continuously measured parameters etc. Main attention is given to such parameters observations, which influence anomalous geomechanical events origin.
