Laboratory of Engineering Geophysics, where research is carried out in the field of recognizing the structure and properties of various geological structures and their behavior in various conditions. The laboratory specializes in improving the measurement and interpretation methodology of test results, using the latest hardware solutions in the field of engineering and mining seismic, seismological, seismometric, and electromagnetic (GPR) methods. The results of the research are used in practice, in the analysis of landslide and sinking processes, the stability of flood embankments, assessment of the quality of the substrate for surface and underground construction facilities, as well as for the needs of effective and safe mining and tunneling works.
For over 30 years, the Laboratory of Engineering Geophysics has been carrying out research in the field of:
The research carried out in this laboratory covers the broadly understood recognition of the structure and properties of various geological structures and their behaviour in various environmental conditions.
The above-mentioned tests and analyses can be carried out thanks to the modern equipment of the Engineering Geophysics Laboratory. The most important elements of this apparatus are listed below, broken down into:
In the field of engineering and mining seismic methods, seismological, seismometric, and electromagnetic (GPR) seismic methods, the obtained test results have practical application, enabling in particular:
As part of the research, mathematical models of the behaviour of various geological structures in specific environmental conditions are also created. In the processing and interpretation of measurement data, licensed specialist software from the world’s leading manufacturers is used.
