Introduction to Special applications such as methods for stability control of slopes and landslides, tunnel convergence during the excavation process and stability of overlying buildings, measurements of oscillations of buildings from wind and transportation loads, geometric design/construction of supper tall and slender structures, and of major structures such as stadium roofs, high-level roads including tunnels and tall bridges etc.
8th or 10th
|LANGUAGE OF INSTRUCTION and EXAMINATIONS||
The aim of this course to familiarize students with modern applications of Geodesy in the continuously evolving field of Civil Engineering, especially in applications related to the geometric design, construction, management, security and sustainability of major and special engineering projects, constructed on the ground, underground, above the ground or offshore.
Such projects require geodetic instrumentation of various types, of conventional geodesy (electronic instruments, especially, robotic theodolites, laser scanners, etc.) and of satellite Geodesy, mostly GPS.
A key point is the design and realization of projects under specific accuracy requirements and minimization of cost and duration.
