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,
  • 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 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

Lecture mode in summer semester 2023:
The course will be held in presence in the summer semester 2023. In case the holding of lectures in presence is no longer permitted due to the requirements of the Federal Government or the TU Wien, a change to an online-mode is carried out.

Examination mode in summer semester 2023:
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.
Please note that starting from the summer semester 2017 programmable calculators are not allowed during the written exam!
