Course Aims
Weak rock formations, underground shelters, drop-down, the nuclear power plant structures, nuclear waste storage structures, underground openings, such as the opening of many engineering structures and stability calculations can be made
Course Goals
1. Identification of underground engineering structures
2. Excavation techniques to analyze stability of engineering structures
Learning Outcomes of The Course Unit
According to the structural and geometric characteristics of weak discontinuities in the rock and determine the failure criteria
Rock and rock mass classification systems, using approaches that characterize the stability problems of the rock units can be made
Rock and rock mass classification systems, an empirical design method can be used in underground engineering structures in the calculations
Excavation of underground structures by the clarity of analysis of the relationship between time to stop unsopported
Determination of forms of excavation and fortification systems
Course Contents
The definition of rock mechanics, rock mass classification systems, the definition of soil mechanics, soil classification, the rock-floor transitions, stability problems, underground openings fortification calculations, soil improvement methods, techniques, poor soil to be reinforced

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.
