Main Topics: Genesis, structure and properties of rock-forming minerals, magmatic, sedimentary and metamorphic rocks. Influence of endogenous processes on the conditions for construction – active faults, contemporary movements of the Earth’s crust, earthquakes. Conditions and factors for the origin and development of unfavorable physical-geological processes and phenomena (weathering, rock-falls, screes, landslides, mud-stone torrents) and measures against them. Hydrogeology – types of groundwater, conditions for feeding and drainage, modeling of the hydrogeological conditions, stabilized and non-stabilized filtration, determining the water inflow into water intake facilities, construction excavations and drainage systems. Engineering geological characteristics of rocks and construction soils – more important physico-mechanical parameters. In-situ methods for engineering geological explorations. Evaluation of the conditions for the construction of buildings and facilities.
