We launch this site to communicate what’s happening at Chalmers University of Technology regarding hydrogeology in rock and grouting of rock.

Courses/Key dates

If you want to be notified when courses are given, write to the examiner (firstname.surname@chalmers.se)


Passed courses

  • Hydrogeology for rock engineers (examiner Åsa Fransson)
    The course is aimed primarily for PhD students with fundamental expertise in rock engineering or groundwater exploration, but others with masters degree in the subject are also welcome. Course memo from the last occasion, spring 2013


  • Kompetensutveckling inom injektering i hårt berg (examiner Johan Funehag)
    The course is aimed for practical grouters to encourage a deeper understandingo f the processes involved in grouting and the flow of grout in fractures. Focus is on how grout properties can be adopted to suit different desired results and how undesired scenarios affect the grouting. Memo from the last occasion, autumn 2013 (in Swedish)
