Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

Learning outcomes of the course unit The subject is aimed at deepening the knowledge of students in the field of measurement of movement and deformation of buildings and terrain for the purpose of evaluation of their stability.

Teaching methods

Terrain work


The Course presents a special application of geodetic methods for measuring displacements and deformations of objects with respect to achieving the required measurement accuracy. The course is to go through the measurement of displacements and deformations, an overview of measurement methods and interpretation of results.
