Project Course in Geoengineering D


Aalto University


Project course is a practical design project which includes aspects from geotechnical, rock and highway engineering point of view. The content of the course is to produce needed design documentation of a road. The documentation will include 3D-terrain model with soil and rock layers of the design area. The road planning will be done taking into account subsoil and rock properties and combining all existing and new infrastructural elements together. In addition to the 3D model, some additional documentation, like description of the design case, dimensioning of structures, producing maps and 2D cross-sectional output documentation will be achieved. Common InfraBIM Requirements will be introduced in the design. <br /><br />The students (max. 20 students can be admitted) are divided into project groups, which include experts (students) from geotechnical, road and rock engineering areas. The teaching method is problem based learning, so that each group produces all the needed design and 3D inframodel planning and documentation for a street/road. Teachers for the exercises will be mainly engineers from consulting companies.

Road design is mainly done using Novapoint and Civil3D following Väylä s guidelines and criteria. Geotechnical and rock designer will produce needed design reports using applicable software and following Väylä s guidelines and criteria.  Participating in exercises and lectures is compulsory (80%).
