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
