Subject aims expressed by acquired skills and competences

The aim of the course is to gain additional knowledge in the field of measurement of motions and deformations, namely measurement methods in terms of requirements for accuracy of measurement results, assessment of stability of reference and observed points, data processing and application of results in practice.

Teaching methods

Individual consultations


The course presents a special application of geodetic and other methods in measuring displacements and deformations of surface objects with respect to achieving the necessary measurement accuracy. The part is also devoted to the measurement of displacements and deformations in the sinkhole, the time interval of measurements with respect to the dynamics of the development of movements and deformations.
