Learning outcomes

After successful completion of the course, students are able to...

  • assess natural hazards and to name protective measures, 
  • describe methods of special foundation engineering,
  • design anchors and nails according to Eurocode,
  • explain the basics of soil dynamics,
  • describe machine-integrated systems for compaction control,
  • estimate the possibilities for the use of geothermal energy and to describe methods,
  • name possible applications of geosynthetics,
  • explain statistical methods and optimization tasks in geotechnics.

 

Subject of course

Based on the course Ground Engineering and Soil Mechanics, in-depth knowledge is imparted, particularly in the areas of natural hazards, foundation engineering, soil dynamics, geothermal energy, geosynthetics and design.

Teaching methods

On the basis of practice-oriented lectures by national and international experts, students will acquire in-depth knowledge of soil mechanics and ground engineering. 

Mode of examination

Written

Additional information

The course will be held online in the summer semester 2021. The meeting ID for the online lectures will be communicated via TISS-News or the corresponding TUWEL course.

Examination mode in summer semester 2021:

Exams will be held as "written online paper exams" until further notice. In this context, please refer to the COVID-19 Distance Examination Regulations of the Research Unit of Ground Engineering, Soil and Rock Mechanics.
In case the holding of examinations in presence is permitted due to the requirements of the Federal Government or the TU Wien, a change to written examinations in presence is carried out. Examination duration and assessment scheme remain unaffected.

Please note that starting from the summer semester 2017 programmable calculators are allowed during the written exam!
