Advanced rock mechanics

7.5 Credits, Course, master's level, T7022B
The course provides in-depth knowledge in rock mechanics and induced seismicity.

The aim of the course is to be able apply advanced stability analyses of rock construction, including slopes, tunnels, caverns, mines, etc. using numerical methods. As well as to be able to understand the nature of the rockbursts and seismic events in underground mines and tunnels, seismic hazard and risk, process seismic data and analyze the seismicity recorded by microseismic networks in mines.
