AH2924 Engineering Suveying 7.5 credits
Principle of surveying instruments, setting-out surveys, deformation and monitoring measurements, mine surveying, gyroscopic measurements
Educational levelSecond cycle
Academic level (A-D)D
Grade scaleA, B, C, D, E, FX, F
At present this course is not scheduled to be offered.
The aim of the course is to introduce the students to the fundamental tasks of engineering surveying.
The students will get basic theoretical and practical knowledge about different kind of surveying instruments and methods used in various engineering problems.
Course main content
- Surveying instruments (theodolites, levels, total stations): principles, testing and adjusting.
- Methods of precise distance and angular measurements
- Horizontal geodetic networks: design, observation and computation
- Height determination: levelling, trigonometric and barometric methods
- Precise setting-out and alignment methods and instruments
- Mine surveying: connecting surveys and orientation with gyro theodolite.
- Deformation measurements: methods and analysis
