Course Aims
Basic classification system used in rock mechanics and the design of surface and underground engineering structures
Course Goals
1. Analysis of classification systems depending on the mechanical properties of rocks and discontinuities
2. Quantitative (numeric) of the rock mass properties and fortification needs to be set at the preliminary design phase
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
1) Determination of failure criteria according to structural and geometric properties of intact rocks and discontinuities
2) Parametric comments about stability that represent the approaches of rock units can be made by using rock and rock mass classification system
3) Rock and rock mass classification system as the empirical design method can be used in engineering applications
4) Analysis of the relation between excavation opening and time required without fortification
5) Determination of excavation shapes and fortification systems in the rock tunnels
Course Contents
Stress-deformation relationship, the rock material and rock mass classification systems, classification systems and the general goal of the characteristics, variables used in the classification systems, the qualitative description of rock environment with numerical evaluation, and fortification requirement issues will be discussed.

Work Placements
As with any other educational component, credits for work placements are only awarded when the learning outcomes have been achieved and assessed. If a work placement is part of organised mobility (such as Farabi and Erasmus), the Learning Agreement for the placement should indicate the number of credits to be awarded if the expected learning outcomes are achieved.
