Summary of the subject: This educational course expands and consolidates theoretical knowledge in the subject area of the application of engineering geodynamics principles for industrial and urban agglomeration territories. Specifically, the course covers the main structures in urban agglomeration territories, their types, and the nature of their impact on the geological environment. Modern exogenous and endogenous geological processes developed in cities under different natural and geological conditions are characterized. The course discusses the peculiarities of landslides and slope processes, river and ravine erosion, flooding, suffusion, and collapse phenomena on urban territories. The occurrence of flooding in urban areas is assessed, and the deformation of rocks under load from structures, excavation works, tunneling, and underground cavities of different purposes is studied. The course provides an overview of the methods for engineering geological study of modern geological technogenic processes and their forecasting. Information is provided on the organization of monitoring to observe changes in the geological environment as a result of technogenic impact. The course emphasizes the main principles and requirements for conducting engineering surveys for construction in Ukraine, the composition, and content of design documentation for new construction, reconstruction, major repairs, and technical re-equipment of buildings, structures, facilities of any purpose, their complexes, or parts, as well as linear objects of engineering and transport infrastructure. Relevant legislation, requirements for urban planning documentation, construction norms, standards, and rules are noted.
