THE DETECTION OF CAVITIES IN KARST AND THEIR STUDY

OTKRIVANJE I PROUCAVANJE SUPLJINA POD GRADJEVINAMA U KRSU

The paper describes structural foundations, road and tunnel construction in karst, especially in karst sediments. difficulties in, and methods of detecting cavities, underground caverns and flows are discussed and examples of constructed structures are given. The need for detailed speleological investigations is stressed, together with techniques such as borehole, excavation, TV and stereophotography, and geophysical investigations. The speleological approach proved to be justified even when supervising injection operations for sealing karst carbonate rocks for the purpose of soil consolidation and for ensuring civil engineering works on a larger scale.
