Module content
Lectures:

Engineering problems, and the applicability of geophysical methods. The specificity of the measurement conditions in the problems of engineering geophysics research. Scale and accuracy of measurements. Methods and techniques in electrical resistivity tomography, geoelectrical azimuthal soundings and penetrometer-based geoelectrical measurements. Modeling and inversion in engineering geoelectrical methods. Shallow geothermal research. Examples of the use of geoelectrical methods in geo-engineering problems.

Seismic Refraction Method: principles of interpretation and application. Principles of the multichannel analysis of surface waves method (MASW): data acquisition, dispersion analysis, inversion; case histories.

Seminar classes:

Measurement errors in DC resistivity surveys. Research of underground engineering 2D / 3D objects – a combined application of different methods: ERT, gravimetry and magnetometry. Recognition of shallow geological structures using geoelectrical methods. Modeling of the temperature field in the subsurface layers.

The engineering seismic data processing using VISTA and REFLEXW systems. Principles of Falling Weight Deflectometer (FWD) method. Application of GPR method (mapping pipes, cables and other buried objects, inspection of roads, pavements and airport runways, mapping cavities or voids, detailed inspection of concrete structures, location of steel reinforcing bars, etc.). The location of landmines and UXO. The investigations of roads using geophysical and geotechnical methods. The use of modern geodetic tools in engineering geophysics.

Practical classes:

Laboratory and/or field measurements with ERT method. Azimuthal vertical electrical resistivity soundings in the field. Practical test-works wih penetrometer-based resistivity profiling. Locating underground metal objects with EM conductometer.
