Synopsis:

The course focuses on the understanding of basic geological laws and principles in relation to architecture, civil engineering and urban planning. Emphasis is placed on explaining the influence of geological processes, both endogenous and exogenous, on the rock environment and how the geological situation affects the design of structures and their interaction with the rock environment. At the same time, attention is paid to the technical properties of rocks with regard to their practical applications. Last but not least, the course includes a brief excursion into the degradation of building and decorative stone and the restoration and reconstruction of constructions made of it.

Requirements:

Passing the credit based on the determination of rocks is a requirement for participation in the exam, which is in the form of a written test at the end of the semester.

Syllabus of lectures:

Lecture 1: Introduction. Earth's structure. Global tectonics. Magmatism. Volcanism.

Lecture 2: The rock cycle. Tectonic faults.

Lecture 3: Earthquake. Landslides.

Lecture 4: Weathering. Karst phenomena. Surface water activity.

Lecture 5: Groundwater. Geological aspects in urban planning. Geological maps.

Lecture 6: Stone as a building and decorative material. Technical properties of rocks.

Lecture 7: Building rocks resources. Restoration and reconstruction of stone constructions.

Syllabus of tutorials:

Week 1: Introduction. Classification of rocks according to genesis. Rock-forming minerals. Practical recognition.

Week 2: Igneous rock system - plutonic rocks, vein rocks.

Week 3: Igneous rock system - extrusive rocks, repetition of igneous rocks.

Week 4: Repetition of igneous rocks. Sedimentary rock system - introduction, textural and structural features, clastic sediments.

Week 5: Sedimentary rock system - clastic, chemogenic and organogenic sediments. Repetition of sedimentary rocks.

Week 6: Metamorphosed rock system - introduction, textural and structural features; mechanically, shock and contact metamorphosed rocks, regional metamorphosis.

Study Objective:

The aim of the study is to understand the influence of geological processes on the properties of the rock environment in relation to the design of building structures. Another objective is to understand the influence of exogenous processes on the engineering properties of rocks and to understand the basic specifics of designing stone structures. Finally, the aim is to highlight the necessary complexity of the approach to reconstruction and restoration of constructions made of natural stone.
