Synopsis:

The 135YTIG course is 1 week of field-based, small-group, practical learning. For more than 20 years, 3 universities from the Czech Republic and 1 university from the Slovak Republic have been cooperating in the organization of the field course. This ensures a great variability of geological and geotechnical sites.

Thus, students can learn about interesting geological and geotechnical issues in relation to civil engineering and geotechnical structures directly in the field at various locations in both republics.

Course framework.

Creation of engineering geological surface maps, underground mapping and measurements; tectonic measurements in the rock mass and their processing; documentation of borehole, probe, rock outcrop (defile), fracture wall; probing technique, selection of field geotechnical tests, geophysical methods; basic hydrogeological measurements; sampling. The exact content of the course corresponds to the character of the sites visited.

Requirements:

135GM01

Syllabus of lectures:

1 week of practical field course in small groups of students. Creation of engineering geological surface maps, mapping and underground measurements. Tectonic measurements in the rock mass and their processing. Documentation of borehole, probe, rock outcrop (defile), fracture wall. Probing techniques, selection of field geotechnical tests, geophysical methods. Basic hydrogeological measurements. Sampling.

Syllabus of tutorials:

The practice is loosely intertwined with the lecture.

Study Objective:

Deepen knowledge of Geology and Engineering Geology. Demonstration of the importance of engineering geology in civil engineering practice.
