Aim of course

To educate civil engineers who consider ground and structures as one interacting unit; who are able to plan, design, calculate, supervise and monitor geotechnical projects. Bridging the gap between theory and practice. Providing a scientific basis as a prerequisite for possible further research acitivities. Critical evaluation of the accuracy of geotechnical calculations and prognoses. Infomation about practical aspects and construction sites, case histories.

Subject of course

The importance of ground in civil engineerng, interaction structure - ground, overview of soils, classification of soils, methods of ground investigation, determination of soil parameters in the field and in the laboratory, control of earthworks; Theory of soil mechanics, geotechnical calculations; design of foundations, retaining structures (design and systems), landslides and slope stabilisation mehtods, influence of water on structures and design, deep excavation pits and their retaining structures, underpinning of buildings; construction methods in ground engineering (theory, design and calculation, construction, monitoring); geosynthetics; environmental geotechnics. Case histories.
